Has anyone had any good results with these? They are on the bike I just bought. I resprung them for my weight and still were too soft. Added oil. Still too soft. I'm probably going to just buy some KYBs but I wanted to see what could be done temporarily.

I would try to track down the race team through your dealer.

Does the race team use the sachs? I have the dual sport but the race edition comes with kyb.

What year? They are a soft fork. There are some shops and tuners in the US that can make them better. The 2020 and 21’s are better but they are no KYB.

I work at a beta dealer/racetech center..
The RaceTech kit will convert it back to rebound on top/compression on bottom so you won’t blow through the stroke as easily
Also have a set of used Marzochi forks we can sell.

I just dont want to dump any money and them not be good enough. These aren't as bad as the 4cs ihad in 16 which I still have nightmares about. I cant get the first initial part of the stroke to hold up. They dont bottom but it's not what Iam used to. I guess my real question is are they worth keeping or just swapping?

But at that price wouldnt it be worth just ordering the kyb through Beta for $1300?

If they are only $1300 go for it. Sell your stock set or keep and swap the KYB to a new bike.

I revalved a set for a guy a few years ago. Nothing special about them. The factory must have been low on shims that day. I side had just a few shims and the other was close to normal. The 7mm ID is the issue with the Sachs forks. They might have gone to 8mm now.

$1300 for new KYB’s is great 👍. The Lucky’s are about performance whereas a fork swap is more about durability. Both can benefit from a revalve or DIY drop ins.
