Are SP1 forks compatible with SP2 ?
I am new to the forum and hoping someone may have the answer to this question. I recently bought a crash damaged 2003 RC51 (in the UK known as SP2). The forks were kind of working but there was obvious damage on the outer (gold) sliders and on taking them to Maxton it was confirmed that they are damaged inside and are scrap.
Strangely though the stantchions are OK. My question is would the SP1 outer sliders fit with my SP2 stanchions?
Maxton believe that although they look the same they may well be a different structure inside but really aren't sure.
Also are there any other decent forks that would fit e.g. RSVR, Fireblade?
The only reason I ask is that second hand forks do not come up very often and OEM outer sliders are coming in at £450.
