Whats the average $ for changing fork seal

6 posts in this topic

I was charged $122.00 for 2 new seals and oil

And I was wondering if this was to much? I pulled the forks off and brought them to a mechanic.

Plus how hard is this to do? Is it something to look into doing myself or is it easy to wreck things.

The seals are about $40 for the pair and the oil will run you about $15. I'm about to do mine so I don't know exactly how difficult it will be. I don't think it's going to be that hard to do if you have the right tools.

Whoops I can see how I was misinterpeted.

I ment to say I had new fork seals and oil

installed. I paid 22.00 for the seals and around 15.00 for oil so he charged me 85.00 to do the WORK. Is this a fair deal?

or should I learn to do it myself

Oh ok, well thats better. Even though that is outrageous for service work, it is about the norm.

Learn to do it yourself. Im not very mechanicly inclined myself and it may seem like more of an undertaking than it really is. The ony way you will ever learn is to try.

If you get to a point you dont feel comfortable with, stop and ask a question. We'll help ya!
