I posted this on another Moby website but activity there seems to be much less than this page. Sooooo
I ended up putting the forks back together and the threaded portion of the upper dampener on each side failed. One sheared off, the other stripped (pic).
Not a whole lot of force was in use, maybe already failing before I started. Or maybe I just gorilla'd them.
At any rate, does anyone know if the newer style (http://www.mopedjunkyard.com/Spring-upper-threaded-mount_p_2737.html) would work with the existing springs? No dimensions given on the parts site.
I'm thinking I could chop what's left of the originals, grind a taper on them, and use them as the floating pins as used in other models.
