My AVG does that too. I wouldn't sweat it. Give Richard a call at 623-463-3488. His shop is located real close to the I-17 and 101.

By the way, I LOVE my new forks!!! It was a real challenge keeping the front end planted with the factory suspenders, even with the compression set to zero. He replaced the factory 45 springs with a set of 50's, and the valving is so plush, it's amazing!! I can't believe I waited a year to get this done. Now I'm ready to start riding the hard stuff.

I also put on a set of 2006 CRF 450x triple clamps on. They have a larger offset than the 2008's, which slowed the steering down. The bike was real twitchy, quite a handful in the sand washes, it's awesome now, no damper needed!

I had to modify the 2006 steering stops a bit to fit:



Here's what the 2008 set looks like.



Put back together.



Ready to roll!

WHoa! It looks like you took the fork stops clean off? Finishline flying crossups will look way cool now! I'll give him a call, thanks.

It was looking kind of iffy on the drive up with the rain, but it subsided and turned out to be an awesome day for a ride… especially being for the end of July… low 80’s, can’t complain about that.

Oh ya, can’t forget about the great traction and the lack of any dust

What kind mileage are those trials treads gettin'?

A post in another thread reminded me I was going to get back to this question. It's a hard one to answer. I'll have to try to remember to let you know about the trials tire life when I finally wear it out. Mine has been on since late April when I went to Moab and then over to the St. George, UT area.
