    Good afternoon all! So I have a quick question for those who ride Orange and know about the Super Enduro's.

    I just bought a 2007 that had been sitting for a few years in an unheated shed. The front fork inside leg (chrome) has major pitting on one side of one of the forks. I just did the fork seals and noticed the damage which made my @ss burn like a super nova. I'm not super thrilled as KTM OEM isn't showing anything coming anytime in the near future (If ever!!).
    The fork seal wont last long.... I want to replace this (inner) tube but not sure where to even start looking?! If you can't get this chrome fork leg from KTM where/who else would have such a part?
    Thanks!

    Can't you just get them rechromed?

    As in the past above.
    Get them rechromed.
    Not cheap but the pair will be like new.

    Or, I suspect many of the WP OC sliders will fit. Look for good second hand.

    Let me Google it! Do companies still do such? I’ll find out.
    Thanks!

    All of these are the same and I'm sure others can fit.

    I have a bunch of them in stock likely.
    Do not worry it is an easy fix.
    It's only money but not that much.
    Nice bike though.
