This is a drop in kit - No cutting or disassembly of your forks needed! We recommend this kit for the most plush ride or those who will do some light off-road riding. We recommend the Matris F15K Fork kit for more serious street riding.
Options: '09-12 V7's with Marzocchi forks, OR '13+ V7's come with Kaifa forks - verify yours by finding the logo-embossed 'M' or 'K' on the inner lower fork slider under the front fender. Some very early production '13s had Marzocchi. Also see our Forum topic on Suspension HERE.
