Video: MRP Can Now Deliver a Fork Set Up and "Ready to Shred"
@R-M-R: Of course a missing few inches could conceivably cause an accident. You case a jump, expecting something to work correctly and it doesn't. Yes, there's rider error etc, but it's a bit like the motor industry. Unless there's enough accidents there's never going to be a full on recall. We all know that SKF are probably the best, hence why RS forks are now coming with them as standard. But SKF are about £45 after market. Chocoluxe are double that at £90...then you have labour costs to fit them. And that's not including the cost of the bushings etc too. So when I say its £100-£200, this is the case due to import duty etc and labour costs in the UK. Do I expect something for free? No. I expect that a 'premium' £800 fork to work out of the box and after 40 hours riding not to pack up. The chocolux and bushings aren't an 'upgrade'; they're a necessity, hence why they're on the newer year models and I contend why they were offered 'free' in the first place.

@R-M-R: But there are times when you need that travel...which you now have as it's been fixed. My issue is that living in Europe and having to pay for this additional work to make an £800 fork work correctly isn't really great customer service. Yes Noah's on various forums helping etc, which is really great, but unless you're in N. America you're a bit f**cked. I'll need to pay and extra £100-£200 to rectify...when all the same versions now come with these as standard because it's a known issue. They're not new models with better dampers etc so of course it's been a problem hence the upgraded parts. I've tried selling mine, but the first question asked is..."do they have the upgraded parts?", then it's goodbye sale!

If they fully bind or get stuck full lockout causing a potential fatal crash...then they shouldn't they be recalling all the old ones? They did a 'free upgrade' to the new chocolux with a service if you sent them back to MRP a while ago (obviously acutely aware of the issue). It was shit they didn't offer a European version of this offer and I was told to pay for postage to and from the US to have it done.
