Hi, I have a set of 04/05 Float R's (32mm) they are functional but have a worn stancheon. I have noticed a set of 07 talas 32's on ebay with a broken bridge.

My question is...does any one know if the lowers from my floats will fit the uppers & internals of the talas 32's?

99% sure that they're compatible - shouldn't have any differences.

You could always ring TFTuned, they're very helpful with stuff like this.

Great advice, unfortunately they are now closed and the ebay auction runs out in under 2 hours.

Well you did say 'urgent ish' ;)

I'll post a thread on UKMTB.COM to try to confirm that the Talas will work with the Float's for ya, how's that ;)

No problemo!

I know there's a lot of retro knowledge on here, but not quite as much knowledge on the modern stuff, which is where UKMTB.com comes in very handy ;) Loads of modern knowledge, but less retro knowledge, so flicking between the 2 gives me the best of both worlds!
