WR426 Leaking Fork Seal Question
Posted February 26, 2005 - 08:11 PM
So after spending the last two hours going through the archived posted I still have a question unanswered.
When I tear down the forks Im going to make up some of those homemade tools (seal driver and Castle nut remover which Im not even sure I need) and wondered what diameter PVC to use for the seal driver. Most the posts are for the larger 450 forks and use a 1.5" pvc pipe for the driver.
BTW, Im going to try the film negative trick to clean out the seal and see if it stops leaking first. If it stops then Im off to get some SealSavers for sure.
Either way I want to change out the oil, seals, bushings, and wipers to keep things fresh.

I just did mine a week ago I thought you had to make that castle nut driver too but you don't.Just loosen the tops of the shocks(easier if done on the bike)drain all your fluid pull off dust cover pop out the wire clip.Use them like a slide hammer pop them a couple of times like they are topping out they will come apart pretty easy at least mine did.Race Tech makes teflon coated bushig for our bikes.Good Luck with your shocks.
My question is still unanswered.....Did you make up your own seal driver? If so, what size pvc did you use?
I'll mess around this weekend. Thanks

My memory's good but it's short, full write up on what subject? If you mean dismantling the forks, I didn't have to pull mine apart after all, but when I do I will put up a post. I guess that doesn't help you much.
Frostbite, did you ever do that full write-up you said you would do?
