Fork Seals and Bushings

Post by GL3 » Sun Jan 20, 2019 7:36 pm



Getting ready to rebuild the forks on my 2005 and wondered if anyone has used this seal/busing kit from Dennis Kirk, https://www.denniskirk.com/all-balls/fo ... 584586.sku versus the OEM parts from Honda? I have nothing against the OEM parts, but if I go to Partzilla I have to go through the parts diagram picking out the parts I want, whereas I can get all that in one kit from DK. What do you think?

I rebuilt mine like 4 years ago with the kit and so far no issues with them at all.
