    If you want to keep the bucket and style of the K0 they won’t work

    You just missed the thread/discussion from last week on a set of inserts for the K0 that includes damping

    Let me see if I can provide you with the link

    We were looking forward to CT70_Scotts' ride report. But, the price is right.
    You should just buy a set, then you can give us your opinion too :--)

    I was lookin for that answer too. As best I could tell, they DO look like the right size and length. I'm thinkin these will be a good part. The trick might be finding replacement seals for them. But I bet they are out there, Daytona's seals might be correct. I think these are knockoff's of the Daytona legs.

    Yes still waiting on mine two sets to show up from Belgium...they shipped the 7th. They hit JFK the 16th there is no update since then I was hopeful for this week, but who knows:confused:.

    I will post pics as soon as I get them, and will be doing some static testing with a scale and a press. But no riding any time soon in Michigan for me:(!

    Hey did anyone else try these off motorkit? Mine are shite. Have minimal travel (most of the time none at all).
    Could also be that something else on my front end is bent I suppose, but I don't think so.
    Will probably look at doing a webbike front end one day.

    In the link above, post #42, CT70_Scotts tells us they only have 1⅛" of travel. Sorry that I didn't bring that to your attention before :-/

    Oh I see now...you ordered them up soon after he did.
    Wonder if they have too much fluid in them, or something that could be corrected.

    Maybe try dissecting them...see what's inside..?

    Yes I ran these on my K0 for the summer they are disappointing, motokit version that is. It acts more like a rigid front end then anything. They look cool as they make the bike sit almost as high as a K1. But between lack of travel and to stiff I would not recommend.
