Got them!!

Thanks to Sergioandres for hooking me up with black forks and new calipers. I installed the forks yesterday and think it looks much better. Let me know what you guys think.

Re: Got them!!

Looks good. Are they just painted black, or did a bike come with them in the first place?

Re: Got them!!

Looks great! I just bought and got a set of black forks from sill'r B sill'd. Im excited to put them on and get that sweet look.

Question though: How high above the tripple should they be? Yours seem high.

No Longer With Me. RIP

Re: Got them!!

Darthteddy: they came stock black just not on my bike.
Devsterman: that's awesome I almost bought them but found theses. Mine is an 08 and the forks came off a 12 and they are 10mm longer than pre 08s. Then my bike is lowered 3/4 inch on top of that. Good luck with your install, it's wasn't to bad took me an hour to swap mine.

The whole bike is lowered 3/4 of an inch so yea they stick out a little more than 10mm.


Thanks everyone I really like them too.
