Answer 2/3 - Submitted 12/2/2009

You would need to find a machine shop locally that can repair the fork and re-certify it. Depending on the dimensions of the fork and how it mounts , hook or shaft?, but most likely it will be cheaper to just replace both forks, safety is the main factor here, my guess is that if you were able to bend the fork it is time to replace them anyway. Worn forks also reduce your capacity.There is no cheap fix for this one.
