Anyone know if a person can get a fork leg> the bottom part
re-chromed? It has a nick in it. If so who do I need to send it to? Or would bying a new bottom part of a fork be better. It is on a yamaha 400.
I would love to but...I am not sure if I'm going to have a bike, and not sure if I can miss an entire week of school. I should have a new bike by then but who knows. And it depends what is going on that week in school and if my teachers are nice or not :) We will have to see, but I want to meet so many of you. Like I said, That is what I think I heard. Either way it would cost a lot less to just have the one fork leg re-chromed.
TI coating is only for good tubes.. It is a high temp plasma process that is not cost efficent for most people. It will not add OD and only works on near new tubes.
As for the rechroming you can have your ol tube reground and then coated and finsish ground. This is not cos effective one beacuse it is exspensive and to the labor to remove the axle bracket is rather substanital.
The set screw has to be removed and the end threaed off. Its a tuff job and the diffrence between a new tube and repair is just not worth the effort.
Polish it out or replace it. It is amazing to me what a fork seal can take, at other times one little peice of grit and the seal will leak like a seive..Funny world...
