I want to change my fork seal for Honda CBX550 Fours


Are you talking about the inner seals or outers seals ,either way its a long and labour intensive job.If you have never done it before then its best to get help from a friend ,Fitting the seals is quite easy ,its the stripping down that takes the time ,and how much oil to put in is found in your workshop manual .if you don't have a manual then you may find one in your local libary .
