Yamaha TRX850

Hello, Can you advise me as the front forks on my import are very soft.Is it worth getting them renovated? Can I fit upside down forks from another model? Many thanks Steve.

I agree with Wil, stiffer springs and fresh damping oil should transform the forks. try hagon in east London, Leytonstone....

TRX forks

I've just found out some more info on this:

If you go the upsidedown route you’ll need to swap the steering stem over as well which is a major job. The most logical fix is a fork kit as Hyperpro did some work with TRXs. But if you want to be a little different, then I’d suggest Thundercat forks as they bolt straight in apart from a spacer for the front wheel spindle. Once it’s all lined up you can head to someone like K-tech or MH Racing to get it revalved as you want it.
