:2_thumbsup: Uh I've never been on a forum before. But you guys provide such a wealth of information I just wanted to say thanks. I've had my dr for 10 years and never knew there was such a following. Wish this site was here when I bought the the fat pig and sh*t a starter gear the day I brought it home.

Thanks. I've been outta the loop as far as aftermarket products on these machines and learned a lot here.
For 300$ you can drastically improve front end?. Wow
I'm lookin at the fork solutions w ddc seems like no brainier.
Anybody think there is better solution for price?

Yeah, my bike broke down the day I got in 2007( 98 torque limiter)
I read a post on here with near identical story of p.o. Epoxied bearing boss? Back in.
Funny thing is, the guy woulda took the bike back, but I wanted to keep it :fool:
So at that time figuring what to do (nobody wanted to weld it) . I did a lot of research, called dealer etc?. I couldn't find any info or related cases. So I bit the bullet bought a case set and paid a shop to repair it. @ 1200$ and a year later I ridin my dr. another Year later I,m up in the woods and run into some people( that's how I make friends lol) this guy starts telling me about my Zuki and a " sprag" gear. Cool dude, he took me on some hell ride drank some beers ( not in a gay way)
Looked into it and I think thumper talk finally had an explaination.

At the time, some dude up the mountain had more info than the inter web!!!! :idea:

Anyhoo I stuck with the fat pig before she was cool

What I say I mean in good humor, I,m gettin used to text/posting
:good:
