2013 Fork upgrade!!
 
Yesterday I shipped off my forks to Konflict Motorsports to have them work some magic.

When they get back, they will have Compression, Rebound AND PRELOAD ADJUSTMENT!!!!

Per Alex, they will be the equivalent to the KTM WP Adventure suspension, way more adjustable than the Marzocchi's

Once I get them installed and try them out, i'll be providing feedback. Could be a few weeks.

PS if you want more information and detail, you'll have to talk to Alex at Konflict.

You can have this all for $300, if your on a shoestring. xChallege cartridges and top cap is all you need, just pick the springs and you can bolt it all up in under and hour....

300? - it mostly depends on how much you end up on paying for the donor fork ....

I would be nice though.

that will work with 2013 WP forks? With Preload adjustment as well?

OMG I love my new 2013 F8GS but the front end does dive a lot on braking and feels soft. Mind if I ask ballpark what the wallet set-back for this magic? I'm almost ready to sell a kidney for the improvement. :mully Think that'll cover it?

Thanks,
Steve

There is a signifigant performance upgrade availible that cannot be achieved going this route (Xchallenge). I have tested with this set-up, and even after 30+ hours of tuning decided that the performance gain that can be had is not something that I can offer as a service. If you are looking for a slight increase, and budget is something that is driving your decision this might be a way to go. There is not a pre-load adjustable Xchallenge fork on the market, not sure where you read that.

These will not work on the 2013 WP forks, pre 2013 yes.

Please let us know when your kit is available for the 2013's. I am ready to have my legs removed and shipped.

Thanks,

Gary

I would like to know when this is availible as well. I would like to upgrade my 2013 ASAP.

Problem is trying to obtain a set of used forks... Unless you have a source us commoners do not have, I think it might be somewhat difficult

Again, like stated, he's talking about '12 and older forks. the '13 forks can't be done that way.

Exactly why I started the thread and why i'm psych'd!

Someone found me in the Flea Market. They are out there, it's worth looking atleast. I paid $190 shipped and $100 for springs. It's worth it if you can get them.

The kit is looking to be about 3 to 4 weeks out till the public release! Please email me at my shop address for any questions you might have.

So what are the advantages of this kit over the Ohlins kit?
