Good piece of hardware. It DOES keep you from reefing down on the fork springs so tightly and makes it more stable when hauling. Not to mention all the pressure blowing out your fork seals. Only complaint is it could be about 2” longer. Lastly, it stays in place better than the Tusk, which I have actually lost more than once.
I often travel 3+ hours to a riding spot and usually have the bike strapped down, with the suspension compressed the whole ride there. This keeps that from happening. A must buy to keep your shocks healthy all season. Plus, the material is A+. Great investment for the money.
I had the other no name brand of a fork saver. It was made of a more brittle plastic that broke after dropping it. This one is more durable and beefy. I like the curved portion that sets on the tire. Makes for a better fit
Description states this is for full size dirt bikes, but it is too short for my WR250R and WR450F. The 250 is pretty short and even on that bike I have to ratchet the forks MUCH farther than I normally would without the fork saver. Well into blown seal territory. Bummer
I've used the PC Racing, Moose, and KTM branded fork savers for years but wanted some that I could leave in an enclosed trailer so I purchased three of these. As another reviewer stated these are way too short....shorter than the other brands by about 2 inches. I will be attaching a stub of 2x4 to the square end of these to use in an emergency and purchasing a different brand for everyday use. There is no reason that the forks should have to be compressed that far for these fork savers to work.
This thing is for mini-bikes or kids bikes, definitely under 250CC. Leaves a huge gap on my 450 and I'll need to glue in a 3x3 block to take up the extra space. Theres completely no need to pull my forks down enough to make it contact this thing. Not a good purchase for me.
A friend had one for his bike.. I made fun of him till I had to replace my fork seals.. We had sent out ower suspensions out to fc at the same time and he had use the fork saver every time we loaded up!! I didn't not.. And he says he bottoms out on a few jumps I never do!! I had to send my suspension to fc for a rebuild..
