Ever try the film trick ? That is take a piece of old 35 mm film and slide itin and around in a sweeping like motion to pull out dirt particles but before you do this clean area well with brake cleaner and then lube film with fork oil you can also use a piece of microfiche somebody actually makes a tool for this now but i can,t remember who

Motion Pro makes the "special tool". You can also use a thin feeler gauge blade to do the same thing. If you are not familiar with this little trick, look up "motion pro seal mate" on youtube. They do a demo on there.

First off you don't need to change the inner chamber fork oil when changing seals, so aprox. 12 oz. in each outer chamber is all that is needed. Second, if you're fork seals aren't lasting very long you need to replace the bushings, they are worn out. Third, you can use a Yamaha 48mm fork seal instead, it will save you some $ and last longer. The outside diameter is oh so slightly larger and is harder to get it but will work with excellent results! Been two years since I put in a pair on my buddy's 07 300XC.
