I recently bought these XRL forks from a guy to get the .47kg eibachs that were inside of them. When I popped the cap off to get the springs out I noticed a ton of preload on them, around 2" - way more than I've seen before on XR forks. Then I put some stock XRL springs in them (still way too long for the fork) and stood the forks next to my stock '07 XRL forks and wow! 2" / 5 cm shorter??? Whats the deal? shortened for supermoto maybe? I was planning on selling them on ebay before I realized the difference in length but I want to make sure I know what I have. The guy I them from says he never noticed and didn't know anything but anyway they're mine now. I the pic both forks are fully extended with stock XRL springs installed. What have I got here?
