got a chance to pick up a tubular k with spring perches tomorrow after work
for 240 bux. I have read and know the benefits of them, dont sound like that much of a big deal would love to lose the extra weight but just need a few opinions from other people
thanks

Who is it? A cheap crap one is not worth any money, cause it will crack and break.

you will need offset rack bushings too probably. if you install it and it knocks when you turn, then you will know for sure.

^ you may indeed :yes

A good tube "K" will sweep your "A" arms forward to help reduce brake dive, so stock arms won't fit properly. Besides, the stockers have soft rubber bushings and somewhat reduce of the benefits of a new "K" anyway.

Jazzer :)

BEFORE you install it, put a heavy magnet on it and sprinkle metal dust ALL OVER IT. A magnet will pull the metal shavings into any cracks that it may have. Is probably fine, but would really suck to find out later as SWEET said :(

Jazzer... always on the lookout for some crack :)

Thats what i planed to do but if your going to do it why not save the extra $150 and get the A amrs also.
