Benoit is back at it. Kaven > Cannella IMO, any size bike. It's all academic anyway.

Added reply in a thread '14 KX450 SFF fork swap 5/10/2021 8:30 AM

2013-14 PSF1 forks were actually quite good. The 15-18 SFF can be a real nightmare. If you do end up deciding to switch to the old spring fork (08-12 is direct fit), I would be interested in buying your forks.

Added reply in a thread Was this the worst coverage of the year? 3/15/2021 11:36 AM
