Wondering if this kit is worth installing on the Showa SFF-Air TAC fork (in my case on a Honda)?
How does it improve the fork?
Good or bad points?

It's time to get them overhauled, I've never really been comfortable with them.
Also on the lookout for some Spring forks.

Yes, it works well.

You don't really need to the cartridge seals, but if you do, they are side specific and one seal is marked with a dot to identify

My forks pretty much seized up yesterday at the track. No idea what's gone wrong in there.
I'm going to send them out to Technix here in Japan. They sell the kit, so I'll have them put the whole kit in if I got for it.

Go for it, and maybe get the skf seals as well, but get oem bushings.

I stalled had my suspension revalved and serviced. I had them install the kit on my 16 KX450. I rode it today for the first time, although the conditions weren't my normal riding conditions so I couldn't tell a noticeable difference while riding, I did notice alot less drag when compressing the forks down at a stand still. can't wait to ride it on the track and feel the results.
