front forks (me again!)

last time on the fork issue!

I am having the forks redone on Saturday, is there any difference between the 03 and 07 forks as my workshop manual is from a 2003 Sv1000 s

kind regards Shamless

Yes. My understanding is that after 2004, the cartridges cannot be disassembled. They can be removed

front forks (me again!)

The 03/04 and 05 and up are different and the later were not that easy to revalve.

The later were just simple sealed steel cartridges that used a smaller rod.

I posted a method to dismantle the later cartridges and revalve if needed.

I typically use a different oil than spec in the later forks, especially if aftermarket springs are used.
