Matris Fork Cartridge Kit

Took these out,



And put these in,



20mm fork cartridges, beaut things, well made, spectacular results,




They are "Matris" fork cartridges,straight forward easy enough job and got them from "CarpiMoto", an honourable company to deal with.
I might put up some more info if there's any interest.

Sounds like a good upgrade, They look very heavy duty,

Have you done any improvements to the rear shock also?

If you don't mind me asking, how much did this run you? I've been pondering getting another tiger 1050, but I could never get a comfortable ride for the wife 2-up.

Penske has a few good offerings for your bike. PM me if you want to discuss specifics.
