There are many threads here on V-Strom front suspension. What bike?

Look through the"Maintenance, Tech and Products" section, or the area for your particular model under "popular Forums".

It would help if you put your bike and year on your UserCP, say as your signature. Then there is no confusion when you ask a question.

Here are a couple that might help:

Otherwise, go to Tools/Advanced search and search "forks" in the areas that may interest you. Select "threads only" for your search to avoid multiple responses from the same thread.

Send your forks to Shock Treatment in Sydney. They have experience sorting strom forks (2014-on 1000s at least, but probably the 'normal' forks too). They change the oem piston for a Gold Valve and reshim the rebound (they say the oem rebound piston is quite good - so saves some $$). Add a stiffer spring and there's change from $700 which is pretty good for fully sorted off-road ready forks. They do the shock too (which I'll do in a while).
