    1984 Z50 front fork tube option

    Hi all,

    I have a 1984 z50 that needs a front fork tube replaced. I want to know what is my best option? Will it be better off swapping the whole assembly or just the tube? Are ebay ones any good?

    Thanks in advance~

    If this is for an adult rider, might be a good time to upgrade the springs while you are at it. There are plenty of companies selling upgraded units. I have a set of wonderful looking Two-Bro +1 chromoly units. They really look nice and are very strong.

    Something that is a total MUST though, upgrade the bushings to delrin units and new upper "anti-wobble" collars. Honda did a great job designing these simple bikes but that isnt to say they are perfect. The front ends are usually totally wobbly and sketchy feeling. Adding those two upgrades will REALLY make the front tighter. Well worth it. Two-Brothers, Fast50s, CHP, and plenty more sell one, the other or both.
