Hi Foccers
In need of a right hand side (throttle side) fork leg lower with a working compression damper adjuster as the one on my trusty steed is seized solid.
Taking the bike down to MCT in 4 weeks (thanks for the lift Paul  :) ) to have the suspension reworked so getting desperate!!
Many thanks in advance to anyone who can help .
Dave.

Am I reading this Fowlers diagram wrong or is a complete replacement fork, including the lower, cheaper than just the fork lower???

Just a quick reminder; if anyone can help locate a right hand fork lower with working compression damper adjuster.
Or even a left hand one where I can unscrew the whole adjuster out of.

Thanks gents.

Front end's totally trashed, but might be worth asking if he still has the remnants?

Well, just like to give a big thanks (and a beer or two if we meet) to Kebab for the heads up on the crashed Fazer being sold for parts on eBay.
Got a pair of working adjusters, that look like new, on their way from Liverpool for £60.
Chuffed  :woot
