What kind of coating? You should look into getting new sliders from TNK. Racetech sells them. They might have what you are looking for at a better price.




I'm always right.

They aren't cheap, I can tell you that. But it might just remove some of the hassle from the equation if you have all the parts at once.




I'm always right.

I have a set that the outer tubes are trashed, the rest it's in nice condition if you need parts out of them

TNK sounds like the best solution for you, Duckhunter - since you won't have to take apart the original lower cast sections from the tubes. Just buy the TNK coated tubes & fit the S&P lowers! Then get some cartridges and you'll be all set, ready for 108mm radial calipers.

Thanks for the suggestion guys, sent off an email for an estimate for the sliders pictured and all the work I want done, I think I am gonna get the upper tubes re anodized as well while it is all apart.
I am going with gold anodizing of course... this will be a total Ohlins wannabe fork when done lol
Hope the truck sells then I can afford the 30mm kit, if not a 20mm for sure.
Now to locate some used 108 radial calipers from some where

I will post up the cost of the work when I hear back. It will still be cheaper then Ohlins forks and perform good enough for me I'm sure.

Patience is a virtue

But if you need some fast, there's a lot of choice of other used 108mm calipers.

No rush here, I will not be riding until the next spin around the sun so I can sit tight

So I got this back from Reactive Suspension.
This estimate is to do the following work.
- Ti N coating on lower sliders
- Re-anodizing t upper tubes in gold color
- Installing the S&P radial lowers
- New oil/dust seals and new bushings as well.

Not too bad really, It includes the return shipping to me as well.
What do you fine gents think ??
I know it is the UK but my friend used these guys last year and he was absolutely tickled when he got them back.

From Reactive,
Hi Matt,

You’d be looking at a cost of £565 with the return delivery to have all the work carried and the forks rebuilt with new bushes and seals.

All the best,
Gareth Evans
