A little price sensitivity poll

I've always been curious.
The $0 should have been <$100 or in other words, just changing out the springs if needed.
 
Found some other datapoints. http://fz07.org/post/25375/thread

Okay...so [HASH]145. I'm cool with it.


Why can't left turners see us?

You may be getting my FZ-09 forks..
How much would they be an improvement over the 07?   How much modding to retrofit?

Damn I want to send my ninja 300 forks in. I have Racetech gves installed but would love the adjustability up top.

a LOT! though not as good as my cartridges or AK-20. ;-) Primarily because the OEM valving is shit. (Come on yamaha, you OWN Ohlins for pete's sake. Beg, borrow, steal time on a fork dyno and some fluid-dynamics software!)

I expect it is a lot of bother unless you've got the whole front end including triples. You can get GSXR/R6 front-ends for pretty cheap and readily available too. I could argue they are a generous cut above FZ09 equipment. I don't know how the FZ07 mounts all the gauges and such. If off the frame it makes things easier.

I would be willing to pay 6-800 depending on what I get, I am also willing to swap out forks and triple tree with other models which fit, kinda like you can do with GSR front ends on SV650s.

I've definitely thought of the upgrade, but I am under 140lbs...

Just because you're <140 doesn't mean you won't see a benfit. Just that you don't need higher-rated springs. The OEM damping will still be largely indistinguishable from a child's pogo stick. Just not quite as irritating as it is for those of us in the 170lb+ bracket.
