Matt's Bitubo JBH fork and XXF11 shock review

Recommended Posts

**my bad.... Asking this in the wrong thread **
 
As far as the JBH cartridge kit..... Is it truly drop in? Sorry for my ignorance (I've worked on cars all my life but minimal experience with bikes). What would have to be done to remove the stock fork internals? Would any special tools be needed or a hydraulic press? Thanks!
 
I'm very interested in both these shocks for my fz-07.
 
 


If god created us in his image, does that mean god is an egomaniac as well?

Yes, take bottom bolt out, turn upside down and shake out all parts. slip spring over new JBH, drop back in, secure with bolt. fill with oil. install cap, go ride.

Thanks so much brotha! Awesome. I thought it would need a bit more work to get the stock stuff out. Good to hear it's that simple. Thanks again!!!!!

Not yet my brotha. I haven't received my stuff yet....But fairly soon I hope. Paul made it clear that this stuff comes from Italy so I'm being patient.
 
As soon as I receive my order and install everything I'll post up in a separate thread my experiences and opinion with the Bitubos. I can't wait!!!!!! If Bitubo is good enough for Michael Dunlop I'm sure they will be well made and engineered to perform.

I agree, the waiting is the worst part.  I'd love to keep stock of these but since everything is custom built to a riders weight it's hard to know what to have on hand :)

I have no personal time, so sadly the bike sits, rotting under the cover.
