Fork seals???

Postby trichard310 » Sun Apr 05, 2015 12:48 pm

I need to replace my fork seals again. Replaced about a year ago, and are dumping oil. Looking to only do this one more time. Any recommendation for seal brands, and if anyone knows the part number for OEM seals. Bike is a 81 cb650 custom? Thanks

Anyone try these?

It there rust or pitting on your sliders? This will eat away any seals you try to use.

None. I think I may have used the wrong size the first time?

Hello!
I ate up a couple of sets and finally bought New tubes after looking at re chrome Costs. Mine were pitted and rusted a bit.

You would do well to polish your tubes at the same time you replace seals.

Yes The wrong seals and Old Brittle seals can be a problem.

For the money, the first set would be interesting to try , then buy all he has if the first set looks good and works well on arrival. No experience with them however.

What are the actual dimensions for the fork seals? I want to make sure I order the right part, and I don't always trust the online vendors to categorize their parts accurately....
