The AK-20 kit is precisely what I wanted, when I thought the bent forks I bought were good. I was very much looking forward to them.
I have no experience with anything other than OEM forks, and I was daydreaming about what the new experience would be like.
I was flattened when they said they couldn't work with the forks I sent. This was just this week. Just the AK-20 is priced at $995,
but I'd have to add labor to the cost of the new OEM forks coming. Already, I'm in for almost $1800. I would love to say sure, why not
shell out another grand?! I already bought an Arata full titanium exhaust, and Marchesini wheels. But at some point you have to say,
whoa there...time to stop spending. You know that we cannot get more than $4-6K from selling our bikes whole, no matter what
they have internally or externally. So they're passion projects and money pits. I hope to enjoy mine another 10 years at least, following
all the upgrades I'm making this spring.

The two that have fallen flat are the AK-20 kit and some unusable or unobtainable carbon fiber bits. Already, that hurts. But I'll still
be happy overall, when I'm rolling again in a month.

This weekend, I'll be doing my valve clearance service and getting all that put back together.
