Finally got round to some pictures of the new fork set up to share



Close up of switch arrangement





Had a good day off road yesterday and felt the benefit of the new forks, Far more planted, and stable when hitting the gnarly sections and also a lot smoother on the roads..potholes - What potholes

Wouldn't have done this without all the info in this thread

Very nice Barnman, I like your switch setup...very clean!! Can you comment on your lower fender? what is it off of? and how difficult it was to make fit. Cheers

The forks

Any of you guys (maybe someone from Europe) are still interested in having this forks?

I have them for sale, have to sell the bike and I would like the forks to be owned by somebody who will enjoy them. You just need to install them on your bike, I will give you the longer brake line also and the new brake caliper part and the front wheel axle. Just give me a sign and we can talk further.

Its off a F800. Not too hard to fit, a bit of reshaping for clearance around the fork uppers, and two brackets. RC Mad has a good write in this thread somewhere

Maybe it's just me but I suppose if you want to sell something a picture and a price might go a long ways in attracting a customer

well, I was prospecting the market, in order to see if it is ok to part with them here, on this topic, so I would not upset the masters of this castle.

but here we go:
2000 wrf 450 kayaba forks, ready to swap over your original forks, new seals and oil.



plus...



and




at the outstanding price of 1000 usd. plus postage. I would loose some bucks on this business, but I've lost them on the road...Not to forget the longer brake line. Just take out the old ones and put the new ones in place, half an hour worth of work.

An update from my side:

I WILL NOT get the Oryx Hybrid bike (encountered some problems with this one anyways), as I have just been offered a FULL Oryx Enduro. This bike is equipped with 100% of the oryx kit and is even cheaper than the other bike.

Colour is blue/white only has 17.000 km on the clock, not much for a '00 bike

One of fifteen Oryx in germany

Same as before gonna pick it up by Saturday, you will get some pics, of course

I've got a lead on a 2001 YZ front end. Will it fit without much hassle ?

You need a YZ wheel or one of the bmw wheel swap kits. I would replace all the YZ bearing with new ones (YZ). I used a KTM steering stem cap for mine and it fit great. Fab up some sort of key holder. I just replaced mine with one I plan to locate in the dash.

I would have the forks lowered an inch but that is up for debate. I think the bikes turns better lowered.

You need a 1/4 inch spacer for the steering stem nut unless the forks are off a 125/250F. The stems on those are shorter.
