Default Fork seals for street bob

Can anyone recommend good fork seals for my street bob

My own fault they have given up the ghost as i have been cutting the concrete outside the garage and didn't think to cover the bike (won't make that mistake again )

Any ideas on good quality seals

The last one's i fitted to the bm were crap and didn't last so I'm looking for some that will

Cheers Dai

I've never had any problems with seals from this company: http://www.motorcycleproducts.co.uk/...7_311_314.html

If you keep on blowing seals, fnarrr, your stanchions may need re-chroming.

Stanchions are fine before I covered the bike with concrete dust there was a very fine oil mist on the stanchions the dust stuck to that and that's the end of the seals that dust is corrosive as hell

Cheers for the heads up on that site I'll get the callipers out and have a measure up

Mind you it's a harley I may just drain the forks and put some grease down the legs

OK I was joking it will get two stroke oil like i always use

I am also looking for a set of gaiters possibility some crosser ones will fit

Cheers Dai

Just ordered some from A R Harley

Not to dear 23.77 delivered

Thanks again for the heads up for the seals Dai


Have got some black 2" waste pipe to cut down to put over the top of the stanchions between the yokes the job should be a good un for years to come

You can see a pink helmet before you

Mrs wiskers is very proud of her pink helmet she says that it's a perfect fit and makes her feel very special

It also matches her pink D.M.s
