I am not having a favorable experience with the tubes manufactured for me by "Forks by Frank". Nice folk, helpful, but they intentionally build the walls of their tubes thicker, making for a smaller interior diameter. My top-out springs just flat won't fit in their tubes, and the suspension specialist to whom I have gone for help, insists that he doesn't like what they're trying to get me to do to make their tubes work.

I either need your help figuring this out because you've gone there with their product (for the Bonnie) before....

-- OR --

I need to buy your tubes.
I have an '05 Bonneville Black that I need to get on the road, and the only hurdle I have to overcome are the tubes. I would imagine Thruxton tubes might fit (??), and I hear Honda's CBR 600 F3 ('96-'98) tubes will fit, albeit a bit long.

I JUS' WANNA RIDE!

Anybody got any tubes you can turn me onto at a reasonable price????

Fascinating, it took my link/computer about a minute and a half to kick down the above linked five second video.....
