Bent SP5's yea, Ill believe when I see the pictures, and BTW, SP5's are 27mm not 32.

And those pitster frontends are ungodly heavy and only seem to have about 4" of way to plush travel.

No, I want to see the pics of the BBR's bent. Ive been around for as you know, quite some time, and have NEVER heard of the BBR forks bending. Xr80 forks and xr100 forks are of the same diameter, and I sure dont seem them bend very often either especialy considering they are on a much heavier bike. I bent a set of 80 forks ONCE, and that was through a head on collusion with a 4wheeler at 25mph. So till I see pics I dont believe it.

Lol, I have broken my shock about 4 to many times lol.

But dont get me wrong, the Pitster front ends are decent, the one I rode though certainly didnt seem to have 6" of travel though and was definetly way to soft.

I still want believe the SP5's bending till I see pics.

I run knock off forks that I bought from kx250f. They work great! I know a guy with Sp-5's and a guy with Sano's and I like my forks 1,000 times better than the sp5's! The sanos are alittle better but a hell of alot more money! I run a Pitster swing arm with an Ishock, the rear shock could be better..... I wish I would have bought a works! The swingarm was a pain to mount because you have to modify the hell out of it! But it is awesome!

i used to run sano bombshells....way over priced for what u get..they were too soft, they stayed compressed like an inch unless u pulled up on the bars, and leaked oil after 2 weeks of purchase...i emailed sano many times to figure out whats up and to get new seals and they told me all of that was normal that there forks are not open bath so thats why they leak and that i need to add oil every to them every couple weeks....

well i just got my 50 late last nigh..used and decked out. and it does have a works shock:) :banghead: but stock swingarm..i think im going to get the bbr super stock swingarm and i hope it lifts it in the rear end and i know the length will help greatly cause when i shift accelerating i wants to pull sidways and make me all sorts of squirrely. i race motocross with my 04 cr 250f and iknow how bikes are supposed to ride buti want a good fork...so the knock offs people are speaking of are from pitster.?? cause i want the fork and 12 inch front wheel which i have lready but i want black...and disc brakes....the whole front end kit...i believe pitsters is what im looking for. but for now ...(2 weeks or so) what can i do to service my front forks??? are they just filled with grease?? im a good mechanic i just never had them apart before...they are squeeky. thanks....guys.

Huracane, nobody is saying Pister front ends are the best, They are just saying they are a great bang for the buck. They do need to be worked in and an oil change.

YOu get the wheel brakes, everything for a good price.

I'm not sure about 6 in of travel.

If I had the funds, Marzochi??? Those Italian forks USD with Disk brakes. Rear Elka shock. But I don't have those funds right now.
