Okay, I need fork seals, and I need them now. I searched through the Dennis Kirk website, and found that our particular fork seals (YZ400-426) are the same as a bunch of other bikes, like:

CR125R 1997-2002
CR250R 1996
CR500R 1996-2000
XR650R 2000-2002
KX125 1994-2000
KX250 1996-2000
Ninja ZX-9R 1998-1999
RM125 2001-2007
WR250F 2001-2002
WR400F 1998-2000
WR426F 2001-2002
YZ125 1996-2002
YZ250 1996-2002
YZ400F 1998-1999
YZ426F 2000-2002

Does anyone have experience with interchanging fork seals? I found one set (ONE!) in Seattle for a KX250,and before I drop $30 I want to make sure that I have the right parts when I tear these things apart.

Thanks for your immediate attention!

Nice info. to know! I bought some for my 426 a couple years ago and got oem. Had no problem finding them. I'm sure pivot works makes a kit for these forks, I have no experience with their kit but the other stuff they sell is good so I'm sure the fork kit is good too.

I don't know if it's good info, but I will let everyone know if it actually works. I have a hard time believing that nobody in Seattle has fork seals in stock, but I am willing to give this option a shot.
