Saw how the stanchion repair is done. It is a quick repair. A cone gets crimped over the standard head if the gap is less than 0.2mm. Of course you have to have the right cone and tool, but easy gets it done!
Both sides have to be repaired, but the shocks comes out quickly, and refitting is quickly.

BoosterPlug, LED Spots, Tool Tubes, RustStop, Kappa Screens, Top boxes, Tank Bags, ATG Gear - whatever works for me.

So my LC is not part of the problematic bikes. Mine was the last build before they added the stearing damper. The funny thing is that everyone said the bike is dangerous without the stearing damper, now I'm glad I do not have one.

The tooling was changed in August to share parts with the RT......maybe they used the road shocks on the GS's

As n ou eers so iets se dan glo ek hom nie meer nie. Saam met n paar sulke bullshitters al gery wat se ons het net gister begin ry
dan ry mens net so n entjie dan ry jy in hulle stof soos die ouens ry. Dink nou maar aan McSack en JouPa  :spitcoffee:

Seriuosly.  Ry net elke dag, gaan practice halfuur of so na werk as ek kan en naweke eerder Feedback Park as 'n boring plat grondpad.  Seker silly maar smaak obstacles, etc lot.
