    Hello Al
    I was looking at the Harris Performance stand last year there number is 01992532501 they should be able to give you a UK price.
    I wonder if they get them for the new Nortons.

    Bought mine thru Drew about 18 months ago and all in they cost me about 2100 which was about the same price as thru Webike Japan.
    In theory those ones on EBay are cheap, however, it'll cost you around 150 for the brake brackets and you'll also need to find a way to mount the mudguard as neither of those items are included.
    Buying thru Drew or WeBike is prolly still the best optiona s the Yen rate is more favourable than when I purchased and I believe it would currently be around 1850 - 1900 all in.
    Expensive, but the best upgrade I made to my Rex.
    Bear in mind also, that there is no warranty on these once they leave Japan...

    Good stuff chaps, I made a reasonable offer on the eBay forks but he rejected it , which is fine.
    I spoke to Harris who quoted 1800 to 1900 which I thought was ok then he mentioned the vat
    I will try Drew or there's a bloke on the z1 forum who is also the go to man for jap import stuff?
    Cheers for the help

    Hello Al
    So 2,280 for a UK dealer set that you could take back to a shop in the UK. Don't no about you but I am not keen on all this import voo do.

    I've never ridden a bike with ohlins forks but I'm sure they must be fantastic, I modded my forks with gold valves and they're superb compared to standard forks for only 85.

    Harris did mention that it's all the money upfront and that they are non returnable ( unless faulty I would think )
    Bit to think about.....
