After a summer of getting my hands battered by the harsh forks on my Mille, I have finally fitted my "new" forks.
I bought a set of secondhand forks off Ebay and took them straight to Maxton. They re anodized the legs, re chromed the tubes, new springs, spacers, shims. valves and a whole bag full of gubbinses.
At the same time I fitted my new Brembo radial master cylinder, then I realised I had no copper washers, oh poo!

You'll definitely notice the difference, especially the radial mc.

Dunno what he's actually had done, but my 30mm big piston conversion was £1400.

The full job was just under £900 incl VAT. Without the anodising and chrome/grind it would be closer to £600

New top and bottom spring spacers c/w spring seats

New compression damping valve
Cartridges re shimmed to suit my weight and riding style
New springs to suit my weight and riding style
