Seal Savers getting thrashed on '07 WR450
Posted May 07, 2007 - 07:35 AM
The plastic fork guards are ruining the seal savers.
Every time the front fork is compressed, the inside part of the
fork guards dig into the seal savers and shred them.
I considered cutting this section of the fork guards off,
but then thought against it for fear the forks would get
dinged up from debris flying up from the front tire (the reason
they put fork guards on in the first place...)
Any others have this issue?
(I swear by seal savers and would hate to not be able to use them.)

Take off or loosen the fork guards.
Remove the plastic ring at the bottom of the upper fork or just slide it up the fork to get it out of the way.
Install your seal savers maybe an inche above where the ring sits.
Put the ring back in its place on top of the seal saver. It will not snap in nicely now because of the seal saver.
Add a zip tie around the plastic ring and one above at the top of the seal saver.
I did this after my first set got trashed and it works great.
