It's all relative.
1K forks no good? how could you know already? You realise that forks need a few k's before they bed in properly. How many k's has ur chariot done so far? Couldnt be a heap being so new. Seems a bit pre-emptive to be mucking about before they get a chance to work properly.....but I guess u yanks like it pre-emptive
hehehe Honda use showa gear on their bikes dont they? Showa make the good gear.
