suspension 2001 92c dx
Due to leaking seals and pitted tubes had to replace front suspension. New not an option. Located and purchased a newer set off of E-bay from a 2003 cruiser. Upon receipt, removed the 01s and installed the 03s tubes and sliders. Everything lined up and bolted up like they were supposed to. But... could tell there was a weight difference between the 01 sliders (heavy) and the 03 sliders (much lighter). QUESTION: Was there a design change between the 01 and 03 cruisers? Has anyone experienced and or heard of this before? Do I have a accident waiting to happen? Have not ridden the bike since the change out and won't until I find out if this is a problem or not.. Thanks for any help...
