Oh I forgot to mention, the ‘10 FX had the later forks and triples being CC’s.

I found these from Christina AWD bikes: epid=27018723834&hash=item2ab291713aIZIAAOSwYUl baeHA"]https://www.ebay.com/itm/KTM-Complete-Front-Forks-48mm-WP-4CS-OEM-Front-Suspension-NEW-from-Factory/183384502586?epid=27018723834&hash=item2ab291713a: g:IZIAAOSwYUlbaeHA[/URL]

Anyone see any reason they won’t fit? 48mm WP, they say from 2017 6-days build. New....

CB, don’t touch the 4CS. They are for sale for a reason.

You should be able to pick up a set of CC’s relatively cheap. They were on the KTM’s well. Husky, I’m not sure?

One of my Bergs has the OC’s and geez they are working great. At the right price I wouldn’t give these pass.

I would personally use any of the available forks - Íhlins cartridges, open chamber, closed chamber, 4CS-type closed chamber, air forks (which afaik exist in cone valve and standard shimmed-valve types).

The CC and 4CS need more setup and KTM seemed to have some issues getting the feel right out of the box on these - but I’ve read enough about them that I believe they can be made to work very well, based on both owners reports and about the technology in general.

The closed chamber forks are sealed and pressurized so they are more involved to DIY revalve, but there are aftermarket tools which make it very workable (needles etc.).

But the CC forks are considered less good out of the box, and take time/money to get right - so the used price can and should reflect that.

But if in doubt I’d look out for OC forks.

If you can’t find any then the others will be fine because we will make them fine

4CS got a bad rep at the start. I'm in the range of rider weights they are designed for and it is fine. The harshness issue went away after a standard service. I think they were overfilled with oil from the factory.

For these 2017 4CS forks, the are 'so cheap' (at the moment, bidding closes saturday so we will see) that I figure I might as well by a new set for the price of a used set that probably needs a rebuild. I asked the seller about axel size and they replied "22mm one side and 25mm the other." Isn't the 2011 Husa a 26mm (bike is at the shop 1/2 hr away, so can't measure myself unfortunately). Thoughts on that?

They also mentioned the brakes mounts might be an issue. Has that changed between 2011 and 2017?

You guys have been a big help. Thanks--

I'm 90% sure that the 2017 4CS fork will have the smaller axle that will not fit your Berg wheel. You want a 2014 or 2015 4CS fork which had the bigger axle.

Complete WP fork & Berringer brake for sale

I have a clean set of WP forks , Upper & lower triple trees complete ,Berringer caliper & wave rotor with front axle bolt/nut from an 06' FS 650.
I had planned on swapping this set up into my FE 450 , however realized the disc is much larger & I would likely damage it as I ride alot of deep mud & rocks.
This was of many parts I purchased from a bike being parted out due to drop valve engine.

If interested let me know & I'll figure out a fair price for it all plus shipping.

PM would be best

Thanks---Don
