So I managed to run out of talent (as usual) and whacked my stanchion through the protector. Astrid will load a pic in a minute.

It's actually made a little dent - do you guys think this is salvageable via re chrome, or is it fubar? Obviously the seal is now leaking...

Also, as far as I can tell, in the Oc ( thus is a ktm 350) there is no structure inside the fork that will get affected. Is this correct?

Thanks guys

Speak with Leon at Blu Note. He can get you a refurbished leg or Game Service can rechrome

Mate of mine had a similar issue - Lood at L-bou racing helped him out.

Would be very surprised if they can fix that, very interested to see if they can

Do some homework and price up a new one too then you can weigh up your options

I also dented my chrome fork shaft through the guard! Raceworxs Did a new one for installed for about R2800-00! Ask Wobbler he bought the bike, he has the old fork that I kept if I wanted to polish and the invoice for pricing!
