    ct70 K1 fork rebuild?

    My forks leak and are super soft. I could rebuild them but I'm not sure if it would be worth it. With stiffer springs and new seals would they still bottom so easy?

    What year CT do you have and which version of forks do you have?

    I just rebuilt my K1 resto-mod forks. I installed the stiffer springs, 15wt. fork oil and new seals from DrATV. The forks are substantially stiffer. I would suggest replacing the rear shocks as well. Good Luck!

    Which rear shocks did you do? Do your fronts bottom out coming down from a wheelie?

    OrangeCT,



    I used a pair of shocks from DrATV. I have a complete new set available that are a great match for the heavier springs offered by DrATV. PM me is you are interested.



    No bottoming with the fork rebuild.
