I just wondered what is the best of steel or brass when it comes to the shifter forks. My four speed Evo is slipping out of 1. gear so I have to tear into it. At JP-cycles the brass is the most expencive, but is it best?
"In the design of an internal-combustion engine, as in all creative work of this nature, the Šsthetic side must not be overlooked.
In the first place, beauty of form and of proportions is in it self an admirable guide to mechanical correctness;
for mankind has come to regard as beautyful that which is mechanically correct, whether it be in nature, in architecture, or in enginering."
I prefer steel one piece design, have seen brass wear prematurely and the 2 piece welded steel break at the welds. so for me it's solid steel.

Why buy parts, when you can pick up some tools and make something way cooler?
