Buy new fork tubes
« on: April 29, 2017, 08:04:16 pm »
Anyone know where I can get a set of new upper fork tubes for a 2003 Concourse?  I would like to get them ASAP if possible.  I'm searching the net now but I don't, know the size.

Yeah, I already looked at those.  They and others are on my watch list.  Well, the seals are already purchased so I'll go through the motions.  See you Tuesday ,  Thanks for all the help so far.  I can defiantly get the forks out again.  :)

A popular upgrade for the ZRX crowd is to use ZX-14 forks.  Should be possible on the C10 although I don't know that I've seen it done.  The C14 forks should also work here.

Here is how to do it on a ZRX:

I never even implied that these were a direct fit, but that it's a popular upgrade for ZRX owners and that the ZRX and C10 have similar front-end design.

In case anyone is wondering, you can get the tubes for 295 bucks each at the Kawasaki Parts House.   :great:

Only $295 huh?  If you're in need of fork tubes, Greens Motorcycle Salvage in Millwood, KY had a couple of C10's when I was down there a few weeks ago.  I believe the forks were ok on them.  Bought a complete fork assy with the triples for a 250 ninja for $200.  New is nice.....but not $600 nice.

Here in the UK I got mine from Allbikeengineering.co.uk
Fitted them to Sanji and worked perfectly.
Cost was 80ukp per leg.
On Otto I fitted gaiters to prevent the damage in the first place.
