I am trying to find out if it's worth investigating a group-buy for the Race tech fork inserts.

I just bought a set of springs and emulators for an R90, was about $400.00 NZ all up to my door. Mr customs was not involved.
I does not look like a lot of work to modify the internals.

You haven't put in the price bro...
or maybe I can't see it:ear

I'm sticking with sloppy stock then maybe nutsos conversion if I can be arsed.
Hey Nutso can you stick another pic of your bike up? I've forgotten what it looks like:D

Hard earned lesson which you are just begining to realise Grasshopper. Buy cheap, spend large, ride little. :wink: Or was that the other way? Some combination of those anyway...:D

Big kisses xxxx Padmei. There's some links for you in my signature

yes Race Tech direct. I rebuilt the forks with later Brembo internals and progressive springs...but now going to go all modern...well as modern as you can with spindly 35mm forks....not sure about the rear yet...I have a set of Ikons set up for a Commando...they might do.

It's the old chicken and egg thing. I'll find out how many eggs we'll need, before I'll bother the chicken.

Buy 10 get 1 free :rofl

Voltaire, what you appear to be discussing is Racetech emulators & new springs, using the later generation BMW airhead fork internals. That ground that has been travelled before. While worthwhile for 70's bikes, that isn't waht is being mooted for the later GSs.

What Koko is investigating is several steps up from that, ie replacement internals - a true cartridge fork with externally adjustable preload, rebound, & compression damping. If these do as stated, then EUR 700 probably isn't too expensive cfw new forks. However compared to purchasing & modifying second hand forks that can do the same thing???? That really is the discussion point.

Kokopelli 11-27-2011 11:12 PM

bump , we need to get this done, before the NZ dollar is worthless :lol3

FYI I've sent them an email to find out if they are willing to give us a group buy discount. So far we have 9 people who are at least somewhat interested. I am pretty keen myself, but only if they show some flexibility with their pricing.

Fudmucker 11-29-2011 11:41 AM

I'm keen - depending on price.
Earning ZA Rand and paying in Euros is twelve times as expensive.
But if it will help to bring unit price down, let's at least try.

One Less Harley 11-29-2011 11:46 AM

I case you couldn't tell I'm interested.
