Hi guys, looking at the list of winter desires and one is the suspension. I have a track on a rear Ohlins shock and was wondering if a 2004 Aprilia RSV1000R, RSV-R Factory Ohlins Forks will fit on my 2007.5 Tuono? I know I will need to purchase the lower triple from a Factory or RSVR (and the nut), but would these forks be the same as getting Ohlins forks from a Tuono Factory or a 2007 onward RSVR? Thanks.

Why not just get the supersport valve kit for your showas? Then they will be fully refurbished too.

gspat, thanks, I appreciate it! If I choose the forks I will contact you.

Fox, it is definitely a thought to get the valve kit, thanks. The Ohlins have been rebuilt and it just so happens that the springs match my weight. I guess one reason, beyond performance, is the bling factor! Yes, I like the look of the Ohlins on the front of the Tuono and it certainly plays into the equation.

Does the R wheel & brakes bolt straight on... or do you need disk spacers or something ?
