Being a local company, we sell a lot of their stuff. Good reports all around for the most part. One of our consultants put the full kit on his ultra and dropped it an inch. Looks nice and still rides great.

Well theyíre installed and it wasnít to bad of a job.I now own a vise,electric impact gun and a 2Ē pvc for a seal driver.Taken it apart wasnít to difficult.Just take your time and go slow.Of course I made a mess but thatís normal.Once the forks are out you take everything out and throw it away.I bought fork seal kits for both forks.$38.00 each.one of the cartridges spun as I was trying to torque down the 12mm bolt on the bottom of the fork.Blue loctite and the impact and thatís as good as itís going to get.As you install the forks back in the clamps I got one back to the same spot because only a little of the cap was past the top of the clamp just by a little bit.As I installed the other I took the axle shaft and slid it threw to the other side until it was level and facing the correct way so the axle shaft would slide smoothly when you put the tire back on.The caps are the same height above the clamp.That was the toughest part for me.I could have used a third hand.But a fairly easy install and if I would have stayed on it from start to finish it may have been four hours or so.But theyíre firmer for sure.And I only went around the neighborhood so tomorrow if itís not raining I will give it a good test threw some twisties
