If you are lucky you can hook the seal out with spliting the fork

I have a 1993 cb 400 need font end and original are hard come by, what other front end will go straight on it .. thanks joe


The easiest thing to do is find another bike that has the same size internal fork seal size as yours.for instance yours may have
41/54/11 fork seals and a Honda cbr 600 May have the same or 41/53/8 so as long as the first number is the same the actual forks will fit your yokes.is yours a cb400f project big one ?

How to Replace front fork seals on Suzuki GSXR 1100 K model


Remove front wheel, brake calliper etc . Undo top and bottom yoke pinch bolts and slide out fork leg. Clamp chrome tube in a soft jawed vice and remove top nut carefully as it is under some load and will fly away, (but its not too much you can hold it with your hand). Tip out remaining oil slowly so as to not loose spacer on top of main fork spring. Clamp lower aluminium leg in vice by calliper mounts and remove allen screw in extreme end (if the wheel spindle was in you couldnt see it) This is the only part that might be a problem as the inner end may turn. An impact wrench may help or if not a simple broom handle shoved up the other end is often enough. Once this bolt is removed the leg will split. Now lever out the dust cover to reveal the wire circlip holding in the fork seal. Remove the clip and lever out carefully the old fork seal. Fit new seal using a large socket and mallet or something similar and reassemble in reverse order, not forgetting to add correct amount of new fork oil.

How much would it cost to replace the forks on a 05 GSXR 600?


to straiten one cost around 120 bucks,that would be if you took it off and took it to a shop with a press.Suzuki dealer has parts (new) and mechanics to do it for you. The add may be right, could be a cheap fix, or not if the frame is bent or just twisted.

98 yzf 600R..Right fork leaking. Problem and fix?


it sounds like your fork seal has failed,it wont affect your brakes but will make your front suspension feel a wee bit "soggy"and will affect your handling,i would suggest getting the seal replaced as evetually the oil from the faulty seal will contaminate your brake pads that will affect your braking performance,replacing the seal,sooner rather than later ,would be a wise move..hope this helps...cheers

Gsxf 600 fork seals are leaking


Get a manual as you will be in over your head if you haven't done one before, and it will have all the steps in there to do it. There are a bunch of parts in the lower leg of the fork. If you want a better set up then you have, I would look at replacing them with some 89-97 model forks as they are adjustable, and our 88 models are not.

2004 honda shadow 600 VLX leaking fork seal bike has 600 miles on it should I replace left and right if only right is leaking.


check first to see if the leaking fork has any rust pitting on the chrome,if it has and its a very small blemish then fettle it off first,and just replace the leaking seal,as the saying goes..if it aint broke dont fix it,if the seals had been in the forks for years and the bike not used then consider replacing both..

Fork seal replacement


Did you try taking down the fork seal and cleaning out with wd/40 and a piece of 30mm film? You should always try this first. The seals rarely go bad. There's probably just a vary small rock holdeing it open and the film will dislodge it the wd is just to help things along.
