Question Do I have inverted forks??

Sooooo...... I bought my bike used. Don't get me wrong it was a while ago. Now they never gave me a rundown on the installs. I just looked at some pics from other threads and it hit me.

Do I have inverted forks?






If so whats the difference from having regular forks?

I think the OP wants to know why he has these instead of conventional forks. The original owner upgraded the stock fork to these ( From an 07-08 ) for better handling. Trust me, your better of with these forks.

Just to make sure... have someone hold you feet while you stand on your head... If they look like normal forks that way, then you have inverted forks.

Sorry Demented, just trying to be a bigger ass than you.

Yeah... those are inverted forks. It looks like your powerband is pretty worn out though. You might want to get that replaced.
