Many fork options from the most basic mods to full replacement fork is available,
We have seen plenty of 4CS! and many 2016’s already (see below…)
You can mod the WP 4CS forks like some people do or…
replace the whole guts with Ohlins TTX Cartridges that are a twin wall design like found in their whole Ohlins fork or…
replace the whole fork with Ohlins 48 RXF that slips right into you stock triple clamps and uses all the same stock front wheel, axle, and lower plastic guards.
See below for more info on each~
The Wp Black Anodizing is poor quality, the caps threads and other areas is common to wear marks and flaking off!
The Rebound Rods and both Red and Silver Cones Shown are also common to significant wear marks and galling from use, also when bottoming frequently this is only worse do to all the small parts flex and other issues!.

WP Tech Tip:
When your Rebound RED Adjuster Goes blowing Off and you gets lost, the cartridge needle valve seal needs to be replaced.
Shown by blowing air through that little hole to see if inner rebound rod launches across the room!, then of before this happens reminder to check or replace that seal under there.
Ohlins Wp 4CS Cartridge TTx and Spring Kits
(To Replace everything inside your Wp Forks!)
Very popular option with excellent results featuring TTX Twin wall design.
Wp Fork with popular Ohlins TTx Cartridges
(see Ttx Cartridge page for more info)
Unlike traditional fork Cartridges this Ohlins TTx Twin Wall design is very unique similar to TTx Ohlins Shocks with twin Piston and twin tube design with more directional fluid flow, less cavitation, and more equal pressure balance through shims and pistons.
These Struts have a tunable internal Nitrogen pressurized floating Twin piston (Shown in background) and True Twin wall TTx Design features within each strut for ultimate improvement not found with a basic single tube cartridges found on all OEM forks.
This Unique design through completely different engineering than standard forks offers a much improved and more consistent feel with less fluid cavitation.
Ohlins has a whole fork available to replace the WP 4CS,
The 48RXF Ohlins Full Fork, slips right into your standard triple clamps and uses stock everything else like wheel, axle, fork plastic guards.
