    Replacement front forks?

    One of the forks is slightly bent just at the bottom of the tree. Does not leak but does make it a challenge to align the forks when installing the front wheel. $120 for 2 new forks from Hong Kong and $90 for used front end. Is there a front end from something else that bolts up or forks that will just swap in?

    Boats.net will tell you all the applications for a part number. The Upper shows fitting all TWs 87 - 2013, and nothing else. I'd have bet on the XT forks since that's the closest "cousin", with many parts directly fitting both bikes.

    Used forks pop up occasionally. You might find someone parting one out on our classifieds section? Best wishes.

    If they are not bent to badly you can get them straightened. I've taken them to a place here that does chrome plating. Should be able to find somewhere. Cheaper than buying more

    I work at a motorcycle shop.
    I have ordered from as well as directed customers to Franks Forks for replacement tubes.
    I believe he can do up to 38 or 40mm tubes... easily within the size of the TW.
    IIRC their prices were very reasonable.

    They are in Illinois.
    Give them a call for a quote... 847-475-1003

    TW fork tube size... = 33mm

    Here's a page with other bikes that have 33mm fork tubes... LINK
    Possible donors?
