they are sold by etshark no?

most likely they are poorly made like the rest of his wares, but I could be wrong.

I would be interested to hear some opinions...

I got these from etshark and they're awesome...

Seems a bit flimsy but it does the job pretty well, also has Motogp printed on the levers (Rice!)

My mechanic said you'd have to get the whole front suspension disassembled to install the adjuster caps.... nfi but sounded like too much hassle

Bullshit, on RWU forks just unbolt the old cap and bolt the new one up. Do them one at a time and you can even do it without a front stand.

Yep easy to do! Just bought a clear oem lookalike screen off etshark today-didnt realise he was known on here but suppose ya cant go too far wrong with the screen! Are the mc19/mc22 adjuster caps the same? I need a pair, iv the big allen key caps that are in bad shape!!!

wish these were available when i had my cibby...

Link here:

has anyone been able to find a supplier for these recently? I've tried ebay and google etc but can't find anything. they would be nice to have some pre-load adjustment and certainly beats sticking 20c pieces in the fork tube till you hit a suitable setting.

I'd buy these to, assuming the thread on them is study enough not to strip and pop them off under full preload adjustment

well even if the thread on the adjsuter failed they'd just end up at the 'high/soft' setting so you'd just notice less preload on the spring. if you mean the actual thread of the cap I doubt it would fail as it's a very large thread and plenty of threads that are seated. it would have to be catastrophic for the cap to actually come off.[hr]
I've tried looking for etshark on ebay but can't even find the seller now either.

have them installed on my cibby also from etshark, all items i got from him are ok, no complaints.

fitting is easy, just direct replacement, but make sure you do them one at a time. and it's going to take some muscle to push them down while screwing them into the forks.

i've ridden thru some speed bumps and potholes at a fair rate of speed and they have held up quite well (fingers crossed)

a pic for you guys:
