Fork Seals in Canada

Postby alastair.kj » Fri Apr 17, 2015 8:37 am



Any Canadians have any experience with these?
Do they fit the 1100 properly?
I'm trying to find things that don't have to cross the border.
Thanks,

Al

Confused about your post.

My preference is to buy fork seals from Honda. I haven't had much luck with aftermarket seals and I hate doing things twice.

Apologies.

How do you go about ordering directly from Honda?

From a Honda dealer. Like Action Motorcycles or SG Power.

OH ok, so no online ordering directly from Honda eh? Does make sense.
Thanks.
So does anyone have any experience with the after market seals?? Specifically the All Balls

Cheers,
Al

I've used aftermarket and haven't had any problems.Don't think they were All Balls though.Been too long to remember who made them.Some All Balls stuff seems to be OK,but some of their stuff is crap also.A lot of the aftermarket atv stuff is All Balls and that is where I run into it mostly.


If I'da known it would last this long,I'da taken better care of it.
