2 hours and about $10 materials for replacing the seal. That won't fix that @^$& anti-dive valve.

Angus;

Depends upon your milage. The parts list can (should) grow a bit if your sliders (upper and lower) are worn. The labor should be same with the new parts as with old so tell 'em to use new if needed. I think Max recommends new slider/bushing each re-build, ask him about it and about possibly nixing teh anti-dive too.

You get way more than springs :p Much better damping devises they are. Do the rear shock too, for balance.

Hello Angus,

Depending on your mileage, you might require from 1-4 bushings. By 20,000 miles, the lower bushings are usually worn out. The upper bushings seems to go about twice that long.

You can install the anti dive regardless of traxxion upgrade. I did mine to save my fork seal and don't mind the dive on stops at all.

Four M4 washers between the anti-dive halves. 1/2 hour and about a dollar.

Can someone please explain to me what these bushings are? I'll be rebuilding my front end soon, replacing the fork seals and oil, but I wasn't aware of any bushings. With 25K on them, I guess I should replace them too.

Are they available from Hal? Part#?

Thanks!

If you have an extended warranty it should be covered. Mine was.

I am sure those are parts Hal has. If you ask for a set of all "fork bushings" you will get 2 upper and two lower bushings. If you need to replace one or all, you will have them. If not, you will have spares for the future. They aren't expensive.

They are the teflon coated rings that allow the two halves of the forks to slide against each other.
