    Re: Ohlins forks real cost?

    As a follow up to my earlier post on this subject:
    I did get stung for duty (as I insisted on them being insured and this seems to trigger being stung)
    I did talk to Nitron, but after initially quoting me around 2000 at the NEC show a two years ago, at the point of wanting to order they told me they were 'at least 3000', but couldn't commit to a delivery date...
    As I said earlier, there is no warranty on the Rex RWU Ohlins once they leave Japan. I was only allowed to order on the understanding that this applied.
    If you bought them via a UK Ohlins dealer you might have more comeback under the trade descriptions act, but not if they ask you to sign a disclaimer waiving rights to warranty..

    There have been lots of threads on upgraded forks - I bought Ohlins because I liked the look of them and knew they would be good. Anyone can slap a 'Maxton' sticker on their standard forks and who would know different... However, I did go for black rather than ring-a-ding-bling gold...
    I also considered the ZX9 USD option, but the cost was going to be more then half the cost of the Ohlins by the time you bought the forks, refurbed and modded them and at the end of the day, quite a few Rexes have them fitted and they don't look anything special..
    Life is hard - and then you die...
