Roger was very helpful, but without sending the forks in there's no go at this point. I don't think the single kit option is in the books for the Strada. Saw one on a motard, but maybe they have a different set up.

I have also been looking at traxxion dynamics which looks good and reasonably priced. That's another option for the motard/stradas. I will definitely have them rebuild/valve the rear next winter.

Not sure which way I'll go - the European exchange rate is so good right now, it presents other options.

Regardless, because of the "unique" construction of the forks, any 2 fork solution will be a pro shop job for me.

Sending forks is an easy matter. Purchase a long gun case and send the forks inside the protective case AND inside the box the gun case came within.

I purchased my gun case on Amazon.

Make certain that the inside dimensions are a couple inches longer than the forks. Also make certain that the case is strong enough for the weight of the forks. Guns weigh a lot less.

Inside the case and box, the forks will safely travel to Roger, and then back to you.

Thanks for the info.. Not sure what I'm going to do. Spoke with a duc guy last week near me, and he seemed to know all about the quirks of the strada suspension and has a good rep.. Worked on a Honda of mine in the past.

Weirdly, with the dollar so strong, I can get a delivered mupo kit from Europe for less than 2/3 the US price - and less than traxxion. This is a luxury for me, that's real money and the US prices aren't reflecting the exchange rate.

Going to talk with the duc guy tomorrow, and see what he thinks.

I put in new front bearings - old ones shot (30,000+ miles), new tire, carefully balanced, and just re seated my front axle. Everything has settled down from being constantly harsh - so I'll just go with stock. Mupo is no help, Austin asked for info but has gone silent. The duc guy in Boston won't touch the forks for liability reasons - Boston does not have much of motorcycle culture so avenues are limited. It's not worth the hassle. If I still have the itch, I'll go with traxxion over the winter.


One thing to note: The manual shows axle alignment via loosening the captive end axle bolts - pushing down and then tightening them. This is wrong: Loosen the non captive end axle bolts, align and tighten them up. Doing it via the captive end will not align the axle. Probably common knowledge, but not to me - anyhow, it resolved many of my issues regarding day to day riding.
