Question RC51 SP1 Fork Pipe

Hello All,

I took my forks to get rebuilt today and was told that the fork pipe is dented.

I went on partzilla to find the replacement part but it is discontinued.

I believe I need the following part.

PIPE, R. SLIDE
51425-MCF-003

If anyone has any suggestions on an aftermarket option or a place that can repair the fork pipe in the Los Angeles / Orange County Area. I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks for your time.

Sincerely,

Anthony

Try checking eBay for a good used SP1 fork assembly.

I know Race Tech buys their new tubes from a company in the EU. Contact them and find out who it is.

Does anyone know if the actual fork tube shown above is the same for Sp1 and Sp2"s. Are the original Honda tubes the same for the Sp1 and Sp2? I'm getting conflicting information from TNK (maker of tubes) web site.

1990 Honda VFR - original stock owned since 1991
1975 Kawasaki S3 - restored in 2004-5 (sold 10-17)
2003 Kawasaki ZX7R - bought 10/2018

1972 Honda Mini Trail - 1st restoration in 1992, and 2016 restored to like new condition. (sold 2/18)

The complete lower assy has dif part numbers. What I'm looking for is the 43mm tube that assembles into the fork bottom. Honda doesnt sell just the tube without the fork bottom. I need to know if just the tube themselves are the same between sp1 and sp2.

For less than $300 , I'd just buy new OEM instead of dicking around with it.
