    Has anyone had any success with using aftermarket front fork valves on an 1100 EV (Jackal/Calif) Tonti framed bike?

    I just ordered some Hyperpro springs and have seen some overseas vendors selling from fork valves.

    Any pros or cons with respect to using these? Any favorites? Preferred vendors?

    Thanks.

    I completely forgot to check Todd's website before I ordered the springs. Not sure how that slipped my mind.

    I will check in with him re the Race Tech fork emulators he sells and see if those are available and a bolt in procedure.

    If you have the EV forks with Comp/Reb adjusters on top, they will not as they are a sealed cartridge assembly. If you have the non-adjust type that was on the Jackal, they will. Regardless, I highly recommend the Matris kits; https://gtmotocycles.com/collection...ia+model_california-1100?sort_by=best-selling -- they are all drop in and go.

    Thanks Todd. I already have the springs on the way so the entire kit would be duplicative (although in retrospect I should have checked with you before I ordered them).

    I have the non-adjustable forks so I will need (want) the emulators. I will purchase them on the site and will let you know if I have any questions once the fork springs arrive and I perform the installation.
