Assume it is KR forks you are referring to

As far as i am aware new ones are NLA so you would have to find a good second hand pair or re-chrome

KR1S yes but was thinking more aftermarket KR stanchions

Think Philpot were asking £185 to re chrome plus postage each way ?

A couple of years back, it worked out cheaper(and a couple of months quicker) to buy a set of Tarozzi stanchions for my RG250 than get them rechromed, if they do them for our bikes, you'll find them on Wemoto or eBay.
