Alternates to OEM forks
Hello, I am new to this forum. I just bought a 2012 DL650 from the insurance auction and the front forks are bent. In my search to find replacements I was unable to find a used oem pair (or even one of them) anywhere on ebay, salvage yards etc.. Is there any cheaper replacements than new OEM ? They are about 650 each minimum [B]yikes..[B] Im already in 1500 for the bike, and if the tubes are this expensive I might just have to sell it or part it out because it would end up being to expensive, I would rather search for a clean running one. The bike has 25k miles it was listed as starts and runs but I cant get it to even crank.. I hear the fuel pump but nothing happens even with a jump pack on it.
Anyways, any alternative out there? Any other year that is interchangeable like 2004-2011 ? or from other models?
