My Mtb has rear disc brake mounts but not on the fork. Is there a way around this? I live in a climate where weather is not my friend. Its either raining or snowing so I'm looking to change it.

a new fork is the answer but if the cost is prohibitive then there may be an engineering shop welding shop) that could weld the bracket to the existing forks
it will put you in a situation as you may have to buy the gear so that the shop can see what to do and the bracket necessary for the job
as most bikes utilize a common fork, you may get a suitable second hand fork from e-bay, gumtree or the local garage sales

I do not have a motor cycle manuel and I need to replace dust covers and seals and fork oil on a 750 GSX Suzuki 89/90 Model . have you ?

hi, the obviouse thing here is to get a manual, however if you think you have the finess required to do the job its fairly straight forward, put bike on stand, raise the front wheel of ground, remove spindle from front wheel, remove calipers from forks, DO NOT REMOVE BRAKE LINES FROM CALIPERS, once you have done this you can then remove the front wheel, put spindle back through loose wheel inc spacers to keep all in place, remove front mudguard, i always tell people to try and remove the lower fork leg first leaving fork tube on the bike, some forks it is poss to do this as the busshing is fitted to the lower leg and not the chrome tube, undo the bolt in the lower fork leg on the underneath inside where the spindle fits through, once removed, using a container to catch the oil, pull dovn on the lug to remove it, if it comes of all the way you are in luck easy job, the fork can then be cleaned and new seal fitted, the manual would come in handy for fork oil levels,if the leg does not come off you will have to remove the whole leg, before you remove it undo the top nut on each leg as the yokes will hold it for you, it is difficult to undo once the fork is removed, once removed, lift up the dust seal, remove the clip, and then the spring from the top, grip the lower leg in a vice with protective jaws, on the flat surface only, to grab the tube area would damage the fork leg, once in the vice, push in the stancion fully depress and pull out sharply you may have to repeat this sevral times useing the stancion as a hammer until the seal is removed, replace in reverse order,
DO 1 FORK FIRST REASEMBLE THEN DO THE OTHER, hope this helps feel free to contact me, paul

Cannot fit to my Trek 820 due to

You have to use a different fork. There are three standard steering tube sizes: 1"; 1.125"; 1.5". The 1" is found on budget bikes, older bikes and some cruiser/hybrid bikes. 1.125" is the most common size and is also usable on 1.5" head tubed bikes using reducing headsets. 1.5" is found on heavy-duty mountain bikes and some carbon fiber road bikes, although its use is increasing in popularity.
The point is, you can sometimes convert down, but never up. You have to source a different fork.

Sorry, mate

I need to replace the forks on my rf900.

Any forks with the same diameter will fit in the clamps but you must consider the length of the forks, fork travel length, speedometer hook up, brake assembly mounting and wheel mounting. Chances are that your wheel will not fit the forks from a Suzuki 550 or Honda 900.

Google motorcycle salvage suzuki and see what you can find. Also, go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part and/or the notation "Not Available" is in the description, the part is not in stock.

Can i fit forks from a different bikes

Yes, forks can be swapped in some cases. First, the diameter of the replacement forks must be the same as the old forks. The length of the forks will need to be close to the original also. Often the entire wheel and brake assembly must change also because the brake hub from a Honda will not fit Suzuki forks. The speedometer may also be a factor because the old cable may not fit the new hub.

Try a salvage yard. Google " motorcycle salvage suzuki " and see what you can find/

Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer? < And it doesn’t cost anything extra!

Seals blown on front shocks

to remove seals you will need to remove each fork leg from the bike,i put the bike on the centre stand and jack under the motor to get the front wheel off the ground,after you remove the fork leg,remove the dust cover(if fitted),remove the circlip holding the old seal,you may have to stab through the old seal with a screwdriver to remove the seal from inside the leg(be carefull not to damage the chrome on the fork leg),clean around the surfaces and install the new seal making sure it goes back in dead square,refit the circlip,then refit the dust cover,replace fork tube back in bike and top up with new oil,most bikes take between 300 to 500cc of oil,but check with your local shop as all bikes are different,and you can adjust the amount of rebound damping by varying the amount of oil you put back in,..sounds complicated but quite an easy job..hope this helps
