Boy I'll tell yah,

If i had a dollar for everytime someone asked that question....... :roll: I have Strato's SR6 forks and they work awsome. they "havent leaked or tweaked" on me I weigh 200lbs and I know how to ride my bike!! and its built to last. I have seen the Bombshells blow there seals ive seen the Red Barron forks leak the first Race the guy raced the bike after they were first installed. Those Marzzochis look decent, havent seen them preform yet??? The new and old BBR forks Leak BIG TIME :( I would have to say go with what you can afford and make the best of it.... :wink:



I got a one time deal from STAVRON MOTORSPORTS he took REAL good care of me!!! But now he is getting out of the Mini Bizz :?



Oh well Later...........OLDSCHOOL

From what Josh Lahaye telling me the shivers are a better made fork. I cant prove that as a fact but that is just what he was telling me.

Every person has a best fork. Doesn't mean they are the best built. Just get what fits you budget and needs and thats the BEST fork for you.

the only reason i like the bombshells better is cause if i dont like the 6s on my ramp i can get them made into 4s.!! but if you couldn't do that i would get the Marzzochis

its messy, and your forks need to get rebuilt every 12 or so hours of riding.

and gudac,you ever jumped with 6" of travel?


no, that is the only reason i said bombshells. cause if i dont like it i can switch them to 4s. plus i called sano and they said that they are making these rubber things that it takes 5 minutes to put in and i will turn them into 6s in 5 minutes and for freestyle you can take them out and turn them into 4s. that is the olny reason I HAVE TO go with bombshells. becuase i can hit my ramp with 4s and race with 6s. if Marzzochis would go to 4s i would get them. cause bombshells arn't my favorite at all. i really think they kinda suck. i just dont have the money to not like Marzzochis when i hit my ramp. so it kinda sucks that it will turn out better to get bombshells. :cry:
