Recommended Posts

I am wondering what excactly this does? I know it looks super trick, and it's expensive, but what does it do?

My riding buddy has hard anodized bodies and TiN tubes/shaft on his '95 KX250. For him the biggest thing with the TiN was that he stopped blowing fork seals. TiN is both hard and slippery so it reduces the sticktion of the fork seals and seems to hold up better than the stock chrome.

Bang for the buck, I think it might be worth it if you plan on riding and keeping a bike for 10 years like he has.

..it looks trick!

It also helps keep a plush ride over time because the coatings make it alot "slicker"

I think the majority of people buy it because it looks trick. In reality it reduces stiction by as much as 50% this is really important for woods riders for that plushness they desire. It is even more important for them because it provides longer seal life. You know what the funny thing is? You never ever see any woods guys with it.
