Question about 2005 kawasaki EN 500 Vulcan
I got the forks off and am about to take them apart
I would love some leading
Hi there ,, if u have taken the forks out ready ,,then u already have an idea wots wot ,, wen u put the new seals on ,, be sure to well oil the seals be putting on to the fork leg,, oil up the fork leg aswell ,, with any oil to hand,, or the seal will pinch or stick as u work your way down the fork tube ,, wot i do to seat the seal in to the bottom part of the leg is use a piece of drainage plastic pipe the same diameter,,,ie, like u see on sinks and washin machines,, the white pipe, use this to push the seal down,, to be able to put on the circlip to hold them in, ,,ive known people to use a hammer and screw driver, to push seal in to its seated postion and marked the fork leg,,and put pits in the leg,, so the seal pops straight away,, avoid the hammer,, cheers,,
