Fork Seal Replacement
« on: February 03, 2018, 10:11:52 PM »
Evening all,
My 2011 tiger 800 roadie has developed a leek from my front suspension fork. Looking at flee Bay I don't see what the correct amount of replacement parts are? Am I right in thinking for each side: two bushes, one seal, and a dust collar?

Next question, does anyone have the process to do it?

Have you tried simply cleaning the seals?
A simple tool made from a milk carton will suffice

If you do replace do the bushes as well. Pyramid plastics do a kit of seals and bushes.  Try cleaning first.

Thanks for this brilliant tip. It seems to have fixed my issue. Saved me a few pennies and lots of stress.
