I've had those just fall off after I leave so it's not charging, ALL NIGHT. I just found out that my battery lasts about a month, cause that how long I didn't charge it before it started going dead.
I also FINALLY got my suspension forks on. I'll take a pic later today. It looks GOOD.
fatdaddy.
I put suspension forks on my Cranny as well, and I love them. Mine came off a bike I found in the dumpster. They were a bit loose when I first got them (if you lifted the front end off the ground, the front wheel would drop about half an inch). I ran them that way for awhile cause I didnt have the tools to take them apart. Then my wife's brother in law loaned me a socket wrench with an extension and an allen socket, and I opened those babies up and fixed the rubber spacers (one fork leg had 3 spacers, the other had one lol) and now they are perfect. Of course, my new build is getting motorcycle forks: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Suzuki-K10-H...MakeTrack=true Thoe babies are down in my basement right now, just waiting to be put on. I need bearing cups for the head tube and bottom bracket of the frame they are going on though, so if I dont find some, I'll have to wait until my current bike can be taken apart.

BBB, could you please put those beautiful K10 forks on a scale and weigh them?
I would like to get a set myself, but they look awfully heavy and I really would like to know just how heavy. I don't want 25 pound forks on my 50 pound bike, ya know?

Shipping weight was 15 lbs, and if you dont mind that, grab a pair or two. Remember though that you will need a longer axle.

i have a pair or those k-10 forks they are heavy but they ride real nice only problem with those forks is they are set up for 3/4 inch handle bars which means you will have to ream the clamps or make custom bars. they sell a set of k-10s for 7/8 inch bars also,but they are 20 bucks more.. bmi karts sells them if im not mistaken..
