I got a set of those hydro dampened forks from treats. The ebr's.
I know other people are running these, id love to hear some input on them in general, and in one specific regard.
They look beefier then your average forks, but in some areas are super super cheezy, like as in the chrome work.
I also am not impressed with the bolt syspem that holds the tubes to the triple tree, its just super janky.
i noticed that the bottom bolts were not even tightened and that the top ones were not either.
a few seconds later the whole triple tree fell into pieces and the tubes were seperate.
I thought this would be a great time to match the paint and paint the tree top and bottom and the headlight brackets so i did.
Then when the dried i tried putting them back together. Still totally janky. In summary, those 4 bolts are what seperates the fork tubes from pushing up under braking and going right thu the top of the tree? I cant tighten them down tight enough with wrenches to make me even unable to turn the tubes in the tree by hand. That seems real dangermouse.
Not i can go get an impact driver and drive the shit out of the bolts , but they dont look like impact driveable bolts. I also think doing that would crush the tops of the trees and crack not only my great paint job but the hokey pokey paint underneath.
What am i doing wrong? ( just in reards to the shocks if you will )
