Fork Seals

8 posts in this topic

I am replacing the fork seals on my WR450F. The manual says that once the first seal is off you should be able to work the inner tube in and out until the second seal comes out but its not budging. Anyone know how to get it out without scratching the inner tube?

Thanks in advance.

You will have to pull the fork leg and the upper fork tube apart to get the bushings to break free. They should come apart after a couple swift pulls.

I hate cracking into stuff I know nothing about but that wasnt so bad. First one took a couple hours, second one was like 20 minutes. Isnt that always the way.

In case it helps someone else down the road I also found these YouTube videos linked from RockyMountainMC.com. I remembered when I was ordering the seals I saw the videos linked from the product page. Went back and reviewed things and it really helped answer some of the unknowns.
