Chrome Fork Stanchions
Wemoto highly recommend having a look at the Paolo Tarozzi aftermarket fork stanchions. These retail from £99.58 (each fork, including VAT) which is only marginally more expensive than a re-chroming your old, worn forks and far, far cheaper than some OEM fork tubes, which can be several hundred pounds each.
Pitted forks eat through seals and can be an MOT fail – there’s only so much that autosol or re-chroming can do. Even then, a pitted fork is a sign of an old fork, and with age forks become bent as the metal flexes with use. Even slightly bent forks affect seal integrity and can affect handling. There are companies that offer re-straightening, but at the end of the day you’re relying on an old, stressed-back-into-shape pair of forks with all your weight and the weight of your bike at speed, and a creased or cracked fork can never be repaired. Why rechrome an old, worn out pair of forks when you can have brand new ones for very nearly the same?
Italian-made Tarozzi fork tubes are made to the highest standard with a quality hard chrome finish and can put up with just as much punishment as the OE forks could. Wemoto stocks these stanchions for a range of models and years from 1973 to the latest models. It’s not just the Japanese Honda, Kawasaki Suzuki and Yamaha motorcycles – we stock Tarozzi forks for Aprilia, BMW, Cagiva, Ducati, and Triumph too.
