Agree, I have had luck fixing stanctions on WP forks with scratches like this. I used a fine file and emory cloth.
You can try superglue and then smooth w/ emery cloth. This has worked great for me in the past and you may as well try it before you dump a bunch of cash for new legs.
Thanks guys. ...I'm going the sand / polish route for now to see if that works. Kinda' sucks having to install new seals, as I just had the forks rebuilt a month ago!
We'll see how it works, but I definitely don't want to piss away $350 on a new fork tube if I don't have to!
Damn RailwayRog and MedPilot, I hope you guys heal fast!!!
There is no exact standard for just the spacer. But, all the spacers and the spring should be 513 mm long. You may have different spacers on each side if the springs are different length. Not often though.
about 7 weeks ago had to have surgery, ended up with a steel plate and 6 screws, Started some light riding a couple of weeks ago.
No pics but the two in each fork leg of mind are: about 1/4" thick and about 1/8"-3/16" thick.
Seems a lot of "Face Plant" threads showing up here....
Xrays are cool....
Went for a little ride today. Kane Creek Rim. 2800 miles on it now.
I'm going in for surgery to get a plate put on tomorrow. Should facilitate quicker healing.
has anyone tried this headlight ??
Wow that's a cheap headlight with a mask too. Not sure I would go that way, you get what you pay for kinda thing. I know that ad monster has a new setup for the stock mask and I likes his model 60 lights a lot. But I guess for that price what the worst that can happen .
If you guys need a headlight, I've got a EnduroTech Dual.5 that fits 2014 KTM I'm selling. I bought it on a whim, tried it out on the street and then ended up not being able to ride at night like I thought I would (wife and kids), so now it's back in the box, not a scratch on it. Comparable to the Baja Designs Squadron, except this one has 5 LED's instead of 4, and it has high and low beam. Drop-in replacement, plugs right in to the stock harness and the high/low switch works just like the stock light. It's adds some serious bling if that's what you're into. Message me if you're interested and I'll send pictures.
Here's the manufacturer info. Installation on the 2014 is slightly different than shown in the video, but super easy. Perfect drop in replacement for the OEM light, 3 screws and a plug and you're done:
That explains why I had 2 thick spacers (1 in each tube) and then only 1 thin spacer on one side. I thought the factory left one of the spacers out, I didn't bother to take an overall measurement with the springs, anyhow I was in there to change out the springs to heaver ones, hopefully it don't make much of a difference or maybe that's why I crashed in the desert (see above post).
I tried that one for a little bit, its 1700 lumens and was great for the price it was a huge improvement over stock. I used it with the adv monster dimmer switch so I had a low beam and a high beam. For the price, it was built well and is pretty heavy and durable, it does not come with the mask but is very easy to install and fits into the stock mounts. I have one I would sale if your interested. The only reason I got rid of it is because I installed a 3500 lumen light in the stock housing a little bit of grinding and a little bit of okie enginuity is all it took. About an 1hr altogether. In Baja my buddie and i checked them out side by side with his Baja designs 6" HID race light. and this one actually threw a better beam and more light. I'm very pleased with how it came out for $150.00 bucks and a little bit of elbow grease.
Blinding, even in the daytime in the middle of the desert.
I have this light in my '14. ...fantastic light!!!
The manufacturer specs the light as 1800 lumen on low and 4500 lumen on high. I have one and really like it. The low light is angled down so that it doesn't annoy other road users and the high is bright enough to do offroad riding at a reasonable speed. I think the design of light looks great too.
What would you consider "reasonable" speed? 70mph in the desert? I'm still looking for the be-all end-all LED to replace my old 7" HID racelight. I do agree that the Enduro Tech looks good and having separate hi/lo beams vs just dimming the light while keeping the same aim (like if I were to use a Squadron) is appealing. I've also considered stuffing a Trucklite phase 7 LED into my housing which would actually be legal as opposed to kinda looking legal, but I'm afraid that I'd be taking a step backwards.
