Brakes are good ( although rear draggs a little) Forks have potiential to be very good but, they are way to stiff out of the crate. A re-valve is needed because the clickers dont do much "adjusting" ( due to crappy factory valving) This is acurate information- hope this helps...

Changing the fork oil made a world of difference in my ssr forks. 100cc of 10wt in each leg made the clickers actually make a noticable difference. Forks also become way plusher.

:ride: I used 100cc of 15wt oil in mine and there really good.The clickers work now you can tell a difference with quality oil.Great forks at a decient price.

yeah I would think that the stock fork oil is junk in the SSR's as well as the ret of them.

You Can Do Any Upgrade You Want To The Staggs Forks That Come On The Ssr / But If You Ride On A Track With Good Jumps, You Will Break The Dampining Rods And The Fork Will Over Extend Any Time The Front Wheel Comes Off Of The Ground. You Will Need To Space The Springs To Pro Long The Forks Life, But They Will Break Again.

Exactly where do you get this information?? I have Staggs forks on my midsize and I definitely jump it and I am not a little guy. Not to mention that Pitsters came with staggs forks until this year(and the current gpx looks strangely similar) and I have not heard of such failures.
