    Help please fork seals

    I have forks for my Hyosung gt250r and the seals need replacing.
    The forks are already off the bike and ready to go. I've been quoted 280 which seems really expensive to me. I can supply all parts nessasary

    GreenMeanie might be able to help if you wanted to hand him a few $$, I Pullded mine off a month or so ago and was $250 inc parts so it's on the money.

    I would think $280 is fair enough if they're in the bike. Half the problem is getting them out and putting them back in

    Suzuki dealership quoted me $370 for my Bandit 1250 forks, and that was me bringing the forks to them off the bike.

    Derek Ball did mine for about $250 (might have been $10 more or less) in my driveway at home. Just wheeled the bike into the car port and he did the rest.

    Got mine done on my gt250r at motoshop in rockingham last year for about $250 including parts and picking up my bike from my house. That seems excessive if they are off the bike, especially if you have parts already.

    Well that was hilariously easy. Maybe 2 - 3 hours doing everything carefully (would be a lot quicker next time), no special tools required for zx7. Total cost ~$40, and chain reaction wanted $300 if I bought them the forks off the bike

    It's common to get leaking fork seals on dirt bikes and all the problem is, is a little bit of dirt stuck in the seal allowing oil to seep past , clean the dirt out then the fork seal usually stops leaking
    my R1 had a leaky seal and I used a rhino seal doctor on that and now it's stopped leaking
    I was not confident that it was dirt being a road bike but it was and only cost me $30 for the seal doctor
    a lot easier and cheaper then replacing fork seals when not needed

    Yep I actually use the plastic lid of a margarine container, shaped into an eagle-beak (nice thin plastic that's relatively strong) for the same job!
    But in this case one of the dust seals had a large crack in it, and water had gotten past. Which eventually started rusting one of the wire seal retainer clips, and there was small pieces of rust and dirt destroying the seal. Chrome leg was surprisingly good though *phew*
