Wondering how you identify a set of cone valve forks? I came across a used bike on craigslist and I'm trying to figure out what forks are on it. The current owner isn't the original owner & doesn't know much about the bike. Anything that I can look for that will help me figure out what they are? Thanks in advance.

got a pic of the bike?

Unleaded tastes a little tangy. Supreme is kinda sour, and diesel tastes pretty good.

No good pics yet, just the ones from the ad.. I’m guessing they’re not very helpful. the bike is a 13 husaberg 250 and every pic I see online shows them with silver forks which has me wondering what these Photo black ones are..

Looks like cast lugs and chrome lowers, so it's not likely!

No seal case looks wrong & fork lugs are wrong. Possibly up to 08 or 09 stock ktm sxf black fork . However Pic is not very clear

I agree, there was a few years that they had a black fork stock.

Normally to identify Cone valve or WP kit forks, I’d look for the seal holder and machined lugs.

Could be the older SXS forks...

Those are stock forks. SXS forks have also machined lugs and outer tubes are silver. Photo
