Just FYI, we sell the Forslyk product in the ATM store:

I'm looking forward to your review.

I've talked to a guy who has used it that I would trust and he says it works well.

Default Forslyk Purchase

FYI - I was going to buy from ATM... however, the price from miedosoracing was $49.95 and from at ATM was $48.00. However, when I went to check out from ATM there was a shipping charge that was > $6.00. While I'd like to support ATM, if I can buy direct w/ shipping cheaper... I guess I'm tight with my money. Maybe I just messed up when I tried to go through ATM? Anyhow, I already ordered direct.... can't wait to try it... so far the reviews sound promising! Good bye arm pump!

Default Forslyk - application

Is it a good idea to pull the dust seals down to the bottom of the inner tube so you can apply forslyk right up to the oil seal? Seems like the closer you can get the stuff applied to the oil seal the better it will be for eliminating the harshness over the small "stuff" in the initial part of the stroke. In fact, is it even worth appyling forslyk towards the bottom of the tubes when you want them to stiffen up on the "big" hits anyhow?

FYI - I'm not a supercross rider so the part about "big" hits doesn't apply to me!

Whoops, that was my fault when I entered it into the store. I will remove the shipping from it, as it is already included in the $48 price. I wouldn't have paid the shipping either.

Default Can't wait...

I received my Forslyk in the mail on Friday. I ordered on Tuesday, so the shipping was super fast. Anyhow, I finally got around to applying it! I brought the fork tubes inside and cranked the heat up to 74 degrees and let the tubes warm for about and hour or two. I didn't want to take any chances with the application. I'm going riding on Tuesday and CAN NOT WAIT to try the forks out. Stay tuned for the evaluation...

you should go ahead and apply the stuff to the whole tube
a little bit of stiction will do nothing on a big hit
