Default Shock seals

     

I want to redo my seals as they leak off and on. Bikes a 00 cr250. Can I order like a kit for all the seals and parts ill need to do the job? Or do I have to order each part I want to replace? I tried a eBay search for kits but didnt find anything yet...

I used a pivot works kit on my '00 CR250. It came with everything (bushings, seals, o-rings) except the o-rings for the air bleed screws.

Yes, there are kits. Aftermarket, like Moose, All Balls, and actually Pivot Works has a complete kit with the bushings on Bike Bandit or Dennis Kirk for your bike.

I prefer the OEM parts when it comes to the fork seals because I have had better luck with them. An OE seal set will come with an oil seal and dust seal, will need 2, one for each fork tube.

I would recomend that while you have them apart to go ahead do the bushings if you are not sure of the last time they were replaced.

You can tell if the bushings need replacing by checking the surfaces for the grey teflon. If it is worn enough that you can see copper coming through over 75% of the bushing, ditch it. It would be a total waste to do all that work and put worn bushings back in the forks.

Randog is absolutely correct. If I rebuild my 01 I will put forth the extra money for seals, wipers, bushings, and quality fork oil. I usually replace the bushings annually and dump the oil 2-3 times a year, depending on the usage. I have tried a few aftermarket companies before but I have not strayed from OEM in 3-4 years. I like the tolerances much better. If you have the forks open, you might as well do it right.
