With their excellent quality and value replacement fork stanchions, Paolo Tarozzi is now the largest replacement fork manufacturer in the world
Manufactured in Italy, these replacement fork stanchions are made to the same specifications as the original equipment, with a reliable and corrosion resistant hard chrome finish – not soft ‘show chrome’ as is original on some motorcycle models.
Replace or Re-chrome?
If your having to buy new oil seals constantly because they keep failing in no time at all then it’s time to inspect your fork stanchions. An uneven surface due to wear and tear, dents or rust will rip up even the best quality fork oil seals as they slide across the fork, leading to oil leaks (an MoT failure point). It is possible to polish out mild corrosion, but with anything worse, often a complete re-chrome, or replacement, is required.
Considering it is only marginally more expensive to have a brand new set of chrome Tarozzi fork tubes compared to a re-chrome and re-straighten of your old, worn stanchions. As fork stanchions endure the stresses of everyday riding and heavy braking, they will flex and eventually retain a slight curve – this will not only cause additional wear to the seals, causing them to fail prematurely, it will also affect the motorcycle’s handling. A creased or dented fork can never be re-straightened and will always need replacing with a new fork stanchion.
Please note: The price of £109 is for one stanchion. We also offer a Rechrome service at £95 per stanchion or £180 per pair. If your stanchion isnt listed then please contact us as we may still be able to get one for your bike.
