Hi I read the article by norbsa concerning a $55 kit that eliminates front fork clang on commandos. does anyone have contact address / phone number / email address?? I'd like to get more info about this style upgrade. I get the impression that the coventry upgrade is no longer available. If I understand correctly thecoventry set up does not use longer than stock damper rods- which set up is best? Thanks for any advice etc that anyone cane give me. flying ace
2. Gregs kit does add length to the rod. A longer rod allows the forks TOP hydraulic bump stop to function before the rod mechanically limits travel with a clunk....or the covenant conversion collar lowered the height at which the TOP hydraulic bump stop functioned. either way....works each way has a potential down side.
3. Having a non worn-out upper damper cap allows the damper/shock to perform it's job, hopefully before the clunk happens. This is my prefered method....renew the damper cap and rod if it/they are worn/rusted.
