Forks? ebr vs. Mk2

are the ebr's better that the stock forks on a mk2

Re: Forks? ebr vs. Mk2

No.

In my opinion, EBRs are better that _magnum II_ forks, but MK2 forks are much nicer than EBRs.

They can certainly be made better by using the MKII triple tree and a super beefy stabilizer bar.

which can be made better?

ebrs. Mine are amazing. I think they are better than mkII

Re: Forks? ebr vs. Mk2

^^^ That's probably because you have not ridden a magnum with MK2 forks.

The EBR forks use springs for both rebound and dampening. The mk2 forks use valves to pass oil through for dampening and springs for rebound. They are much less bouncy and most of the time give a much more plush ride. There is a reason all modern sport bikes use hydraulic front forks.

I have a set of mk2 forks and I was really disappointed. Maybe they need to be cleaned out or something, but they didn't feel that great. EBRs big downfall is the triple tree, and mk2 triple trees are really beefy.

Maybe I'll give the hydros another shot but I was riding on them for a couple months and was not impressed.

I like my mk2 forks they work great! I was just wondering if the ebr's were better. thanks paz

yeah. I would say oil dampening is better and a little more engineered than spring forks. Its common sense, however I have magnum EBR's on my Maxi and they are not that bouncy. I have never ridden on oil dampened forks but I would imagine they are way more cushy ride than the springs like Paz said.
