Can anybody confirm whether the forks depicted here on an SC really are 1098s as described in the spec on page 4 ?

I thought 1098 (all) had TiN coated stanchions.

Here's the photo ....

and the text barry996 ....

I did PM the author but got no reply. I am interested to know how he got to use the calipers with spoked wheels. Perhaps just the axle clamp is 1098.

Whilst on the subject how does the clamp attach to the stanchion, can it be removed in situ without dropping and dismantling the forks.

Thanks

Those forks look like they were put together from a bunch of different parts. They do look like ohlins forks (overall shape, gold color, ohlins fork caps), but the non-TiN tubes and the fork bottoms are not the same as on the 1098s. I didn't even know there were any non-coated ohlins tubes. They could even be from a jap bike.

Thanks for the input, but from what I can make out 998 999 all have TiN.

A non TiN fork is fitted to the PaulSmart LE. The caliper mounts dont look right either

Those look like Paul Smart forks with the lowers from a set of 999 Ohlins and 1098 calipers which do bolt up to the 999 lowers. He probably got the lowers so he could mount the radial 1098 calipers.
