Which one would you choose/recommend?

I need to replace the inner tubes on my CBR 600 F4 forks as there are gauges on it & prominent rust marks.

Fork Tube for Honda CBR600 CBR 600F F4 1999 2000 Front Fork Inner Tubes | eBay

or

2001 CBR600 F4 Honda Fork Tubes Inner | eBay

or

None of the above.

RaceTech TNK tubes get my vote

Yeah but those are $200 a pop for the chrome. The other variations are $300 a pop! OEMs can be had cheaper.

You didn't say there was a price limit, and since it's not my money I went for the coolest ones

I'm interested in finding a reasonably priced source too, if anyone has any leads. If I can find them, I have a lead on some local mildly bent f4i forks I may try to save.

I like the price on the new ebay ones, but just can take the risk on whether they are good quality. I wish there was a way to know. I just sent a request to Forking by Frank to see what they charge.

Update: no luck with the above. Found a place in the UK that sells Italian made fork tubes (wemoto); around $340/pair shipped. Made by Tarozzi. Supposed to be good quality, but I haven't found any real reviews yet.

Sorry, forgot to update here. I bought the used OEM ones, offered him 40 & he took it. They came as described, some rust spots from where the triple would be, but otherwise no gouges.

The HongKong ones are the cheapest you can buy as replacements. OEM you can get from partszilla.com for $150 a pop, so 300 total. Better off just buying a mint used full fork for that much.
