Good stuff! Good to hear a real opinion on these cartridges
If you get somebody like Steve plain to do them, you just send them your forks and they fit them. They have tested them in the field to come up with a great base setting. I told them my weight, he valved to suit and i bolted them straight in and off i went, felt perfect from teh get go.Are these inserts the same whichever bike with Xplor forks you buy them for? I was looking at the K-Tech ORVS system and they seem to have 1 model for 2017/18 and a different one for 2019 on.
I have a 2017 350 and want to be sure they would move to a bike later than 2018 or from 4T to 2T.
Is there much tuning to do before fitting? I'm happy to strip forks and swap springs but I haven't a clue about shim stacks.
Why would you buy a set of used TTX that needs servicing and modifications to suit your weight/ riding skills when you could buy these brand new for 850ish built to your specifications?Are these 6500 inserts comparable to the Ohlins TTX cartridge? I saw a used set of TTX for sale for £700.
That's why I am asking which is a better investment. Leaving the money side of the equation out - the 6500 is a better option?Why would you buy a set of used TTX that needs servicing and modifications to suit your weight/ riding skills when you could buy these brand new for 850ish built to your specifications?
These high-end fork cartridges could actually be worse than stock if not serviced and set up(shims, springs, air gap) properly for the rider.
