Fork seal seating how far?

Post by sportsfreaked » Fri Mar 27, 2015 11:20 am



How far do you seat the seal on the forks? Do you seat it just far enough to clear the c-clip or do you seat it till it bottoms out? Thanks Ed


Thanks to all who answer and help. It is greatly appreciated!

I think I may have messed up. Is the slider bushing suppose to go over the fork tube bushing? Thanks

No, they should go next to one another. No bushing should be on top of another.

Here's the order they go:
