Weight of forks???

Recommended Posts

I ordered a SDG front end kit for my son's CRF50. It came damaged (shipping related) so I got a chance to inspect it before returning it. I'm really surprised at the weight of it all in addition to (my perception) the inferior quality. The throttle tube housing had broken, the cable was kinked, the painted steel wheel was scratched, the axle, nuts & bolts looked like they'd rust after the first washing... but anyway, it was really, really heavy. I cancelled the order & now my mission is to find a 'light' front end that works. Could anyone give me an idea on the weight comparisons of the Marzocchi, BBR, Foes, or other forks? This is for a 6 year old who weighs 50lbs and regularly launches it over a 20 foot tabletop. Have an Elka shock on it and the front end is ready to break. Thanks
