I've just introduced myself in the appropriate section, but I'll say Hi again. Recently purchased myself a much unloved 09 Stelvio pre abs. Cosmetically it looks fairly sad but nothing that's insurmountable.
Roller tappet conversion is done and it runs lovely..gearbox is nice...41.000mls. My intention is to run it for a couple of months and see how far I wish to go with a renovation over the winter.
I paid £1900 which I think is around $2500...Not sure about in the US but a very cheap bike in the UK.
Anyway, as I've said there's nothing insurmountable, but the big headache is the right side fork clamp is split. New in the UK the lower leg is around £800 including taxes...ouch.
My question is, did anyone ever come up with a fix? I'm considering making a plate from 2mm stainless which will need to be fastened to the top of the rhino horns and bent over the front of them.
Any help or advice gratefully received.
PS I've looked through every thread I can find on this subject...not found a solution yet. Think I'd possibly be better off breaking the bike than shelling out for a new fork leg...very little chance of finding an undamaged used one in the UK.
