Replacing fork seals

Postby eoc321 » Mon Jul 19, 2010 9:41 am



I need to replace the fork seals in my 80 GL1100. I know I have read a thread somewhere on this site explaining how to do it but I cannot find it again. Can someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks for the reply. The tool tip is great. I enjoy fabricating "shop made" tools. It might have been this site that I read the original article. It dealt with oil replacement as well as seal removal. I'll keep looking. Thanks again.

No Problem. You might have seen it the forums for other models too so make sure to check there, but just know it might not be the same procedure as the 1100. If you don't already have on I would pick up a shop manual too. They have some exploded diagrams that help out a lot.
