I had these replace a couple of years ago while out on the road.
On my ride home Tuesday I found out its blown again.
Who sells the Whole Kit? Seals, Bushings, Oil, The whole thing?

Here is a parts list for an 08. I think the only difference is that you need two of the same seals. So, you need 2 of part number 26, and do not need part number 42. The later models (06 and up) added a second seal in the left fork tube, and part 42 has that additional seal.



The prices above were from HDL last time I did mine about a year ago.

I think wingstuff had a full kit at one point....

Yup, here it is....

They want $112 for a 05 kit, same parts list.... I would just order the list above from HDL...

Bummer. It is best to replace all the wear parts when available if possible.

I have been lucky on the wings with no leaking fork seals.

If you ride out west alot(sandy) that sand and wind are murder on seals

Tom.I see you haven't check current DLP current prices in a while. :shrug:

BTW:You forgot the Fork cap O-rings that are part of WS's kit.(I installed a few of their kit so I know what is in them)
DLP parts are currently going for $94.33 (With the o-rings)

For some reason WS has their prices backwards? The 01-05 kit should be $98.99 which would make it the better deal seeing you get the o-rings.

BUT---DLP will price match and does offer a % discount when they price match-


Bugsquasher (Tom) will come out ahead by ordering from DLP.:thumbup:

Don't forget the fork oil!!.

What type of front suspension are you running, stock or aftermarket springs, etc?

I have them in there, look at the LAST item in the list (part #40)....

You are correct, as I indicated in my post ("The prices above were from HDL last time I did mine about a year ago."), the prices are from roughly a year ago...

Pretty amazing that they have raised the prices on these parts over 50% !!

Tom.Everything has shot way up since Marysville closed.:eek:4:
This was way before the 2012 was released too.So some can't blame it on just the move back to Japan.

In 08 I got a mirror housing for $23 now it goes for $141.Wowser!:eek:4:

Thanks Matt.
