Hello, Can someone help me identify the forks that are installed on my CB1? I believe these are either F2 or F3 forks. Is there a way to tell if the fork tubes are the original CB1 tubes or if they are different? I would like to get the forks serviced, but I am not really sure what these are.

Hey Sam, the lowers are stock but the adjustability is not. There is some documentation in the Hawk forums where F3 cartridges were swapped into Hawk forks, which may be what you have here except into stock CB-1 forks.

It appears that F2 forks were still damper rods and would not have the compression adjustment that your forks have.
