front forks

Postby dinsdale » Thu Sep 11, 2014 3:46 am



Hi All
have just stripped down my front forks to fit new seals and Traxxion springs, both pistons have the oil lock valve assemblies fitted but one piston has the oil lock piece fitted above the oil lock valve item 20 part no 51432-MN5-003.
Is this correct or should both piston assemblies be identical?
Thank in advance

That's correct. Which leg has the oil lock varied from year to year, but there is only one. We had a user who saw this and thought; "wow, one is missing" and actually machined a new one - so he had one in each leg, and didn't seem to have any problems. However, I would just put the one back in the same side you found it.
