Disassembled the fork seals before I had new ones.  Kept the orientation by tying them together.  When the new seals came in, they were a little different.


Just need some one to double check my conclusion.


The fork seal has a raised lip that needs to be installed so that the lip is facing the wheel.

The fork seal has a large and small gap.  The small gap must face down towards the wheel.

Springs on both the oil seal and dust seal face downward (towards the wheel).
