    Fork Upgrade

    Newbie here and I was hoping someone could help me.

    I just got a really good deal on a 98 Mesa GSX that came with the original Indy S front fork which just is not up to the task of working with my big frame(215)

    What would be the best front fork I could find under 200?

    Im kind of hoping to run into a deal on the forum here but what are the main things I should look for in order to not change the geometry of the bike?

    Any info would help,

    Thanks

    A RS Tora Air fork set at 80mm would be a good fork to look into.

    +2 ... Here is a link. This is the same one I got a few months back and have been very happy with it:

    I will add - the picture doesnt really do the color justice... IMO - the pic in the link looks more white but the actual fork is truly silver.

    Great thanks,
    found that the Performance Bike by my house actually carries them in stock but they are 250 there :/

    I guess I will have to wait and order

    250 for a fork is not bad. What were you expecting to pay?

    250.00 for a Tora isnt bad, pretty much exactly what Price Point has the 318 Solo Air For with motion control. Unless they are selling the Tora U Turn for that much then I would avoid it.
