Want To Buy Good Fork Seals For The SE

Good evening gents

We have a parcel coming from Cyclops Motorsports for our tank protector so we are going to fill the box with a few things we need.

Given Maya had a weep we will get fork seals now and take them with us if the quick fix does not last.

My question is are there any brand of fork seals that have proved to be better over time and use than others, may as well get the best with this opportunity.

Thanks gents.

The SKF seals that come on all the new KTM's are simply the best there is. Low friction and long life.

I think the skf seals are one of the best you can buy.

I bought mine from slavens racing. Comes with the good quality seal grease.

While there I changed the fork bushings too. Helps if the stock bushings are worn out and in all probability they will be ...

You can get a full KTM SXS fork rebuild kit that includes the green SKF seals, wipers and low friction bushings for $100 MSRP, minus a good discount usually. Depending on the state of your forks this might be a better value for the money than just replacing the seals. If you have to take them apart anyway it's no extra effort to rebuild them at the same time for only $40 more or so.

I would also suggest that you add some full length neoprene sleeves, that go from the guiding ring at the bottom of the stanchion all the way to the bottom of the slider, and fixed at both ends with safety wire or some strong cable ties.

A small amount of added stiction, but not likely that you will notice it on such a heavy bike, and your seals will leave much much longer if not dirt can get in there.

Great advice thanks guys, got one opportunity to get it pretty right so will do.

This is the list of gets, doesn't seem to be too many places to buy most of them from one shop.

Flexjet carb screws http://www.advmachines.com/product_p/jp_flex2.htm
Fork air Bleeders http://www.chaparral-racing.com/Prod.../WC26-310.aspx
MW R filter http://www.racingairfilters.eu/?ids=kop3/sub8
Cyclops CF cover and glue
Fork seals etc
Rear Wheel bearings?
Rear shock top bush

Beating my brain to think of what else we may need, any input from SE'ers for items that may be of use feel free to chime in.(not bulky tires etc tho )

The KTM fork service kit is part number is R14020 and has all the wear parts for a 48mm CC fork but the SKF seals and bushings work in a OC 48mm fork. Can't beat the price. I always have one in my race parts box.

Brake pads, chains and masterlinks, oil filters, air filters, grips, the new hotness SKF wheel/axle seals?

Once you get those nice new seals in, and depending on where you are right now, I could possibly arrange for a coupla sets of these puppies to be sent to help out...

PM me a mailing address, if you like, and I'll see what I can do.

Prevention is better than the cure, and all that!

You may want to re-think your choice of fork bleeder valves. Chaparral site says they are back-ordered but the Motion Pros are in stock and half the price of the others.
