probably says something about the project bikes i tend to buy.

if the fork cartridges are shot ( you just managed to dismantle them ,i never even tried. ) new ones are 40 euro/pair over here. might be slightly more down under,but probably still cheap.
one of the reasons why i end up with a shed fullof guzzi's , parts are cheap, and available.
try that with a ducati....
Its not as bad as it looks.....
last night I got the cartridge apart....it looks like one that holds hatchbacks open on cars.....was empty and felt rough....I pumped some ATF thru them and that seemed to make it better....but the shaft seal is worn out.....
I have a set of Lansdowne cartidges for my Commando with rebound on one leg and compression with the other.... hmmmm. Looked at the FAC ones.... $300 US....... might go for a set of stock ones for the moment.
My internet keeps dropping out...dang...got more rusty worn part pics to load up.



Next the UV rebuild
