mcman56 Posted September 4, 2022 Report Share Posted September 4, 2022 Once I used the lightest oil I could find, my TY175 forks felt pretty good as far as spring rate and damping was concerned. However, there is still a lot of stiction and the forks are not very compliant over little bumps. A friends TY with 250 forks looks and feels much more compliant on small stuff. Are the 250 forks more compliant for some reason. (They are hard to find.) Can the 175 forks be improved in this area? My fork tubes were a bit scratched up but repaired with JB Weld and much polishing. They do not leak. I was advised to get the "green" fork seals but could not find them in this small size. Has anyone tried fitting bushes in the lower legs? How difficult is it to set the legs up on a lathe? It does not look like an easy task. Are modern Teflon coated bushes available to fit the tubes? I could not find any. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
