Sorry to threadjack, but are there any sponsors that stock OEM fork seals, or can at least offer them at a fair price?

Valving, seals, spring, fluid. Haven't really dug into what would be best for me. Bike will mostly be street/track. By the way, did you ever get that shock you were looking for Quong?

As for doing everything locally guys. I wish I could, you guys recommend Patrick and HOP a lot,but I'm in the military and can't enjoy that luxury until I return next year.

P1 Racing. If my shop is closer, you can also drop it off to me. No extra charge. I make stops by there frequently.

I'm thinking the 8.1 kg/mm spring from the 05 GSXR 1k is working out right now. I still have fine tune my suspension. I didnt know your circumstances. Have you tried to look for any where closer to you? Where exactly are you? I can ask around and see if anyone close to you can do what you need.

I appreciate it man, but I'm in Fort Rucker, Alabama. Just trying to find anything for my bike here is pretty much non-existent. Luckily there's a place here called Stormy's garage. They are frequents at jennngsgp in Florida. Even got an invite from the guy to go with them so I'm trying to get my suspension dialed in before I go.

On another note I hope the other shock I have will work on my bike. The nitrogen chamber is facing the opposite direction. Everything lines up other than that, so I think I'm good.

Hit up Alabamasportbike.com don't know if they are still up but I'm kind of sure their Facebook still is. I knew a guy on there that passed last year. I'm on my phone. Could also try bamarides.com.

I don't use facebook, but Bamarides worked. I'll troll around in there and see what they have to offer. Appreciate it man.
