Question RC51 Front End Swap Snag

Hey Twisters,

I went to the shop to get my RC51 SP1 forks rebuilt. I was told the the inner fork tube was bent.

Can you say P.O'd

Anyway I went on Partzilla. I want to confirm that I have the correct part as I have gotten some pretty insane quotes on repairing.

Also it states left and right side on the forks but I do not see a designation for the inner tubes. Will these parts work on both sides?

PIPE, FR. FORK

Do I also need ?

BUSH, SLIDER (SHOWA)
51415-KCR-003

Any help, suggestions anyone can advise me on would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for trying to make the dream come true.

Sincerely,

Anthony

Are you swapping to RC forks? the part# you listed is for a VTR Superhawk not a RC
RC (SP1) fork tubes are 51425-MCF-D01 for right side and 51525-MCF-D01 left side or 51425-MCF-D31 right side (SP2) and 51525-MCF-D31 left side (SP2)

If you're just needing the tubes call RaceTech their TNK line shows a replacement tube for the SP1 (PN# FTNK 0050470)

Can I share this with you? Maybe you can understand my confusion. I'm totally not questioning your knowledge or help at all by the way. I thank you for your time.

On the RVT link is the inverted fork

Race Tech Site you suggested

RT - TNK Fork Tube Search


Your thoughts are greatly appreciated

See on the TNK page that they list the tubes as USD (VTR SuperHawks were conventional) and specifically callout SP1, but before I plonked down my credit card# I would give RaceTech a call and verify but I would be willing to bet the TNK tubes they show are indeed for the RC51 (SP1)
