Let me know what you find out. I have a set of G1's that are in need of a rebuild. I would like to get them rebuilt, but if I can get new G2's I would do that.

You didn't miss out a whole lot. I bought a set of those $300 ones off ebay and that was a big mistake. The RB forks are crap. Always had problems with them.

Ya he charged more than $35...his parts were beat to shit. And he was so high he forgot to bring half the shit I wanted. I had them pulled apart and had the nitrogen cartridge checked and whatnot before the spring side was checked. Had to purchase clamps and risers from him too.he sold Me a 10" hd rear wheel that he cracked and then sold me front hd wheel filled with metal pieces and had to slime the tube cause so many leaks. It was a joke.

Ya well he lived like 2hrs from me so we met and then he told me what was and wasnt included and then told me what i had to pay extra to get and then didnt tell me that the bars, risers, wheel werent included. I had to pay for those. And then i picked up the forks and the stupid lower fell out. I paid for a 12" front wheel that has a tire filled with metal i mean grrrrr...oh and he sold me plastics and forgot the fender and number plate and fork guards. Said hed mail them next day and hasnt responded to my txts since. He also was gonna sell me the ishock and then brought it and said he didnt have tools to take off swinger and so either buy swinger and shock or neither. Anyways Ill sell the forks, clamps, hub, axle on PM if someone wants to buy them just not on ebay since their fees are so high for cheap just PM me. I was gonna put on my stocker but +1 on it are just fine for it.

It did it before I even had the brakes on it lol. Too tight and the forks would bind the wheels, too loose and there was slop. There was no middle ground on it.


What do you mean by too loose and too tight? What was loose/tight?

Did you try loosening all pinch bolts applying a little pressure to the spring side and tightening everything back up?

I bought his red baron swinger along w/ iShock and hd pegs. Fast shipping and he even threw in a free red baron chain guide and free red baron hd peg mount.



My experience was good..

The axle nut. Too tight and the wheel would bind, too loose and it had a bunch of play in it. I tried loosening up the pinch bolts and putting pressure on the spring side but it still didn't work.

I think you were definitely having further issues then. The axle pinch bolt shouldn't have anything to do with how the wheel spins on the axle. Unless you were running a stock front wheel, then your hub bearings were mose likely shot

I was running the stock front wheel with RB disc brake adapter. I don't think it was the hub bearings because the wheel rolled really nice when I had it on my stock forks.

I gotcha!

I was just saying, I'm not saying just to defend RB, but when you tighten the axle nut your spacer is pinched up against the inner bearing race-making that tighter. Something had to be put together wrong, bearings shot, or something
