Anyone Have A Fork Seal Service Kit?

Looking to ever so graciously borrow a fork seal service kit.

Looking for an adjustable or 41mm fork seal driver
A rod holder and spring compressor would be nice, but not necessary.

Will just be for the weekend.

Thanks!

Yep, just looked it up. That's pretty much it minus a fork seal driver.
Think that's all I should need. I can find something to wedge to get to the bottom nut on the cap.

I've heard the correct size PVC pipe can work as a seal driver, but I know I would prefer an official seal driver.

Its an 1 1/2 pvc. Dont just cut it in half. you have to dremel out about a1/4" as to make a bevel on the inside of the pvc. If you dont you will damage the seal. The inside part of the pvc will hit the seal and not just the outside lip of the seal. Also cut the pvc long way so it will slip over the fork. Or I have one you can use

Ahh good info. So you beveled the ID side to just put pressure on the very outer of the seal pretty much. Sweet.

Going to borrow Marty's kit for the weekend. If I can't find a driver or end up not having some PVC at home, I'll shoot you a message 2fas4u. I'll be working on it in Friendswood.

Hey Randy, I really appreciate that offer! That's very generous. I don't wanna make you do all that. I think I got one secured as of right now too.


Take note guys....it's members like 2fas4u, ArtistMarty, and bob_1 (even though he didn't post in here) that make this site worthwhile...

Just wanted to thank everybody again for letting me borrow the necessary tools.
Changed the seals myself this weekend and saved at least $250+.
Not that bad once you figure out what's going on.
My pops also took pics and machined a spring compressor and we fabbed a oil level tool. So I can let people borrow them now if they need one.

Thank you MH!
