Help identify front forks

Postby tallman21 » Mon Mar 30, 2015 6:59 pm



Hey Gang.

Sorry to post another topic on front forks but I have been trying to do a front fork rebuild and put in some new seals and i am having a problem. I figured out my forks are not stock and there are no identifying marks on them.
The forks seals I ordered were for the stock forks and they are just a bit too big to fit into my forks. They are about 2-3mm too large. I have done some searching online and i cant find these anywhere. If you guys have any idea or places to look that would be amazing.

Thanks,
Eric

I see you guys are as stumped as me. Can I measure the diameter of the forks and try to order seals that fit that?

Measure the forks and get the relevant seals.
