F650GS Fork Tubes Needed

I'm looking for some new fork tubes for my 2012 F650GS, can't find them anywhere, except the dealer at $600 EACH. Any suggestions?

Are you talking the chrome uppers or the aluminum lowers?

I've got most of a front end but no wheel or chrome.

Ebay is a cheaper source than the Dealer but since most accidents are front end, you rarely see forks available. You might want to look into the GS Single compatability. Lots of thumper front forks out there and I know some Twin guys put Thumper spoked front wheels on.

I converted one 650 to an 800 because 800 forks were available after an Inmate swapped a moto-cross front end on his 800.

What's your exact needs and goal?

And are you in NSW or stuck on Ruta 40?

Nsw unfortunately. I am after the chrome uppers, mine are pitted and I keep blowing seals. I've done the ebay thing, came up with zilch.

Here in Canada the Motorcycle specialty shops offer re-chrome and other types of coatings for the off road crowd. Have you ever looked into that?

I bought my 800GS front end from OZ and it was $200 in shipping but my only choice at the time. The wonderful Inmate put 200 $1 stamps on the box. Something's not right somewhere.

You know who you are.
