Usually there are no markings on the fork caps as it comes out of the crate. At that I've seen. Is this a used machine? can you post a pic?

Stampings usually indicate a 'tuning' or 'series' fork setting done by KYB factory tuners.

Maybe you've got "A-series' forks!

i will maybe give them a while then get my suspension man to strip them and have a look!
i originally thought that if bike was gareth swanepoles he would maybe have had his own suspension on an then took it back off again, time will tell.
front forks feel quite stiff, but when on track feel ok, havent had a lot on bike to work anythin out yet.
