Hi everybody, here I am again with a question about the forks oil seals... Do you know if is possible to put another Kawasaki model's seals, or even another marks? I've been using the Honda ones, but I don't know if they are ok, it was very difficult to get in. Even I'd tried with Yamaha r1 seals and were worst. :doh:doh

Anyway, do you have suggestions about it?

And sorry for my poor english:D:D, greetings from Mexico City!

Are there Honda seals in the forks now ?

If they are in there, and they are not leaking, ... I'd say, they are working

The way I see it, you have 2 choices.

You can go to the All Balls website and send them an e-mail directly asking them the specs: 56-133-1 All Balls Racing

Or, you can go to this site All Balls Fork and Dust Seal Kit 56-133-1 and put in your bike information and see what it gives you as the specs. This is what it gives for my '02 for the part number we have been discussing:

Yeah, they're working good, but I'd like to try another one.

The thing is, here in Mexico sometimes is very difficult to get OEM parts from some marks and models, the way to fix it's to combine marks.

It's the first time I hear about ALL BALLS for example!

Well, I'll try whit ARI or ATHENA I guess!!

Thank you very much to all!

You should give All Balls a try. Their product is much better than OEM. The OEM seals have one "ridge" that makes contact with the fork cylinder. All Balls has multiple ridges. Testing shows that the All Balls seal should last 2 - 3 times longer than the OEM seal.
