Might have a chance to snag a set of Marzocchi RAC 43MM SBK forks on the cheap (well..relatively speaking that is). They're 50mm/54mm fork tubes so I could run them in GSXr triples no problem.

Wondering if anyone here has any real experience with them as to longevity, performance, maintenance etc.

If I can snag them they'd look amazing. Red anodized upper, with black nitrided bottoms and billet brake mounts. Would look killer on the front of my Thruxton I think.

I know many monster owns swap over the SBK forks and consider them a major upgrade to the stock monster forks. I would also recommend if you do swap them over to get stiffer springs, the thruxton is a much heavier bike then the ducati SBK. I've started to gather everything for a daytona front end swap on my thruxton. But a SBK swap would be awesome to see.

These are not the same non adjustable poorly sprung stock Marzocchi forks though. These are fully adjustable for both compression and rebound and are designed for SBK use.



With a 25/30mm axle and the same fork tube diameter as the late model GSXr, I could use the carrozzeria GSXr front wheel and triples and it should bolt right up to the bike.
