New pressurized front fork

Hi guys, I would like to introduce my new pressurized front fork, made by the italian specialists from Paioli Meccanica.

This baby is completely tailor-made under customer's need and it fit perfectly onto the bike without modifications.
You can choose parts colours, springs rate, tube lenght, valves settings etc..

It has 43 mm inner tubes, external preload, compression and rebound settings; also it has a really cool feature that is the fast oil level setting, that is externally adjustable without opening the top caps.

Available in the states?

Seems obvious...but do they fit the 675 and or the 675R?

What years?

Price?

Thanks for showing they are beautiful!

Though many times they've seen the way to leave.

It fit directly onto both '06 and '09 Daytona, and obviously onto the Street Triple too. I'll use this fork in my '07 Daytona 675.
Anyway, Paioli Meccanica has developed a specific pressurized fork for Street Triple and others naked bikes too, similar to mine but a little less performing and without the external oil level setting.

The Daytona R has bigger fork mount holes into the triple trees, so it's possible to fit this fork using some adapting bushings.

When ordering the fork, you can also choose the brake caliper's bolt spacing: 108 mm for Nissin or aftermarket calipers, 100 mm for the OEM Brembo calipers used in the Daytona R and many others.

I don't know if the italian shop could sell this item in the States - I'll ask him for sure.
Regarding the price, here in Italy this fork is CHEAPER than a Ohlins 30mm Cartdrige or a Bitubo Pressurized Cartdrige!! And it is fully customer made... It's really incredible...

That really is incredible considering that the Ohlins 30mm kit is around EUR 1400,- with springs, oil and fitting...

The Bitubo pressurized FCH29 cartridge kit lists about EUR 1222,- + IVA, which is 20%, right? Then total cost for the FCH29 is EUR 1466,-

This type of fork does not appear on the Paioli webpage (yet?).

Anyway, good news that new products are available. The external adjusters indicate that the two fork legs does different things.

Congratulations - looking forward to hear more about how they work and how you like them.

Damn they look nice. Got any pics of them mounted on the bike yet? And more importantly, how do you like them?

OP -


The logical next step here is that you freight a pair to me for extensive track testing. As a professional writer, I'm sure that my critique published on this forum will lead to excellent sales success for you in the future.

And when I'm finished I'll send them right back. Honest I will ...

You're right man... you would not see this fork on the Paioli Meccanica webpage, because (I think) they didn't take care on updating their website... however, their major business as I have understand is to design, develop and test suspensions for OEM equipment, both Paioli branded and other manufacturer branded.
Here in Italy their aftermarket suspensions are sold, tested and serviced by Poletti Racing, a famous factory that works mainly on off-road bikes, but also follow road-racing stuffs (as World 125GP and Moto2 series).
Anyway, I've buy this new fork type, called USD43 NG, by another shop.

It has an asymmetrical way to work. Both legs have the same top-out springs, but the main springs are different: in the left leg, we have a stiffer springs that makes itself at about 70% of the total spring rate, and we have the preload adjuster (it works on a bearing, so it's really simple to set this value by hand) only on this side. On the right side, we have a "lighter" spring, and when there is the necessity to change the springs rate, only this little springs is replaced, saving worktime and making cheaper this event.
In the left leg we also have the main "air chamber", made by the lubrificating oil level, that is as said externally adjustable via the valves that we can find on the bottom of the leg.
The right leg accomodates the hydraulic closed (and pressurized) cartdrige, and here there are the compression and rebound adjusters.
This cartdrige contains an expecially developed hydraulic fluid, different from the lubrificating oil used to lube the tube bushings: this arrangement gives a little level of tubes friction and a great response of the hydraulic cartdrige, in comparison to the standard open bath systems that uses only one oil for both functions. Also, the cartdrige has a DLC coated piston rod and a check valve who makes indipendent the compression and rebound adjusters.
I haven't request a special tubes coating (Paioli Meccanica can satisfy every request on this side - DLC, Tin, and many others special coatings) because it would takes an extra sum - at about 150 EUR.
I think I'll do this on a future service... depending on my pocket size


Tomorrow I'll put this baby on my Daytona and then I'll give it a proper testing activity - I'm having bad moments since the past week, I guess that ride my bike would bring some happiness to these ****in' days.
