    Re: Suspension and brake lever feel questions for HP4

    I obviously didn't heat it up enough as it was only an experiment, my research was mostly regarding the effects on applying heat to that type of alloy and not just the gnarling.
    Why is it a good job that KYBs aren't fitted to your bikes, there's no discernible difference between KYB, Showa or Marzzochi mass produced forks.
    The importance of buying an RR and taking its forks apart are currently irrelevant as we are discussing what risks that are involved in refitting all lower knuckles on USD forks.

    No, we're not discussing it. You are. The rest of us are just baffled as to why.
    It would be standard practice, by order of the manuafacturers, to replace parts if they cannot be safely removed and reused. If the manufacturer like Ohlins, KYB, Showa, Mupo, Maxton, K-Tech etc etc don't demand replacement then there's no issue, there is only bad workmanship (either prior or current).

    I raised a concern and then SSR went on the offensive so yes, we are discussing it.
