What are you guys finding to be a good replacement for the fork seals on these bikes?
Mine just started to leak and I am lookin to order new ones.

Thanks:thumbsup:

I recommend the MSR-HP seals (TT Store). They've worked out very well for the 5 '06's I've put them in. The kit comes with new dust seals that are also more effective. The set to use is the one listed for the '04-'05 YZ450 (last time I checked, there wasn't one shown for the '06)

An alternative that's much better than the originals is the seal for an '04 YZ450. It's a much more robust, two-way seal.

They're listed as 04-06 now, if these are the ones you're talking about http://shop.thumpert...t.asp?p=590&s=2

I think the idea was to reduce the friction caused by seal drag. There's a trade off in that, though.
