Fork Sub Tank?
Posted December 21, 2002 - 10:07 PM
i was wondering if any of you out there have used a sub tank on your front forks? What difference will they make?
I ride more of trails but ride road too since mine is street legal.
Whats the cost of one set of billet aluminum sub tanks?
Are they worth it?
I am thinking of getting one but am not sure if i should? Please advise.

Yup, they are actually two external tanks that hold extra oil or rather displaces it so the forks will not bottom.
Fool the suckers!
I am told they will actually make the forks more plush. They are also attached to the forks or behind the number plate.
**Question is are they worth getting at all?
I won't be changing the fork springs and i am only changing the oils and seals.
Should i just stick to the good ol' forks on their own.
Or just go with the fork sub tanks.
The ones i am considering are billet aluminum tanks.
Pretty trick looking but not like the carbon fibre ones i saw before.....
Let me know if any of you have used one before.

My suspension is set up by JM Racing in Spring, TX. I believe the cost for the tanks is $200.
