Default Fork Preload Cap Upgrade

This mod adds a little bling to the forks, allowed me to finally set my preload properly, and was fairly simple.

These are from a 99-02 SV650, kind looks like I have super sport forks now.

That doesn't quite give the same adjustability/tuning though.

I like them... but not sure how well they'd work with any bars other than the sport bars.

Nice but that does nothing compared to these babies.

+1 Thanks, I think they should work with any handlebars.

I have been searching ebay for a while to find some, finally found some that were not selling for $100. Got these for $50 shipped

OEM fork caps for 2002 SV650 are the same as ours, or I'm searching at the wrong place?

So how does this allow you to adjust preload? I didn't know you could on our front forks..
