Rob,

I have only seen the YEC axle clamps (fork bottoms) available for sale with the complete YEC fork system, but never as a stand-alone part. The last time I checked, a complete pair of YEC forks was $3,000, or $1,500 per leg.

Have you seen the fork bottoms for sale by themselves?

Hey GP,

How much did it cost you to make the ohlins setup?

I don't have a how-to, but I took pictures throughout various parts of the assembly, so I'll post those for you later.

I put a set of Ohlins forks on my 01 back in 05 and they have been great ever since.

Re: Ohlins Forks for R6?

Did you have your stock tubes TiN coated or did you buy aftermarket?
