Strength:

With Lots of Suspension, you can soak up some HUGE jumps!

Weakness:

heavy...But you HAVE to know this!
I mean...LOOK AT THIS MONSTER!!!

I have this installed on my 2006 Iron Horse Yokuza Komichi Type R
This raised the front so that the overall bike is now a Medium
awesome for those Freeride/Downhill adventures!
Bike lift to Squaw Valley anyone?

Strength:

light, responsive, good adjustability, high quality manufacturing standards, look awesome

Weakness:

cant think of any apart from my set are noisier than the other sets Ive used or my mates sets

Not sure if mine are 05 or 06 - they have the chrome bomber decals.
The forks are awesome. Same league as fox 40's or boxxers but not so extortionately priced. Super responsive over the small and rough stuff. Plush over the big stuff. Easy to setup for any kind of track/ terrain.

My only dig is that mine (not any other set Ive come across) make a lot of noise on big hits. Its kind of a loud 'honk' (lol). Its quite funny but also really annoying! Does anybody know what this is? Plz contact me if you do - [email protected]
Think I'll have to take them in for a service.

Strength:

Super Plush Big Hit fork, Love the chrome decals and the beefy stantions.

Weakness:

i guess you could say its heavy? but who cares.. slight topout if you dont have alot of rebound/compression. stock springs were too weak for me but again i guess thats not so much a weakness as configuration..

This is a great downhill fork. Super plush and it wont bottom out. The preload clips are sort of a pain but whatever.. once you get em set were you like it you dont need to tool around with em ever again. This thing is a monster and it'll absorb just about anything you give it. Huck away on this bad boy. Full Flaming Chilis even though is freakin expensive. You gotta pay for the topline stuff but i guess ive come to terms with that. make the guy behind the counter at your local lbs faint and have him order you one!
