ok...i'm new to the whole 50 thing...actually, i just ride my kids around, but anyway, he has a knockoff 50, for the most part its been a good bike so far...for him. every time i get on it, i end up ruining something. heres my current dilemma. i was out tearing around the yard, i was ridin a wheelie and it got a little sideways and i fell...lmao, yup i did. well, when i went off the back/side...i pulled the throttle back and the bike went apeshit across the yard and beat ass into the ground...i picked the bike up and the bars were crooked. the forks actually twisted, i was able to straighten everything up by holding the front wheel between my knees and giving the bars a few good yanks. well, now the forks seem very week, almost like a small bump gets them out of whack. is there a stiffener out there i can buy to strengthen them up? or am i stuck buying a set of forks?
i seen these "fork stiffeners" on ebay..they are an aluminum rod...anyone know where they go..are they worth the 18 bucks?
would a billet upper clamp solve my problem? the top clamp on it right now is just a pos stamped steel thing.
thanks for your guys help...and sorry for the long post...i just have to get my kids bike rolling again.
