I need to order fork seals and bushings for my 04. Does anyone know the part number(s)?

Thanks!

I've also included a couple of #'s for other parts that you may want to order for your fork re-build while your at it.

Thank you wrenched, that's what I was looking for. I checked out the parts fiche... it shows you the drawing, but not the part #s.

I was going to ask if there are other parts I should be concerned about while servicing my forks, so thanks for including them. But I have to ask... why the bolts? Are they somehting that typically wears out on the forks?

If there is anything else I should consider getting, please post it. I'll put my order in in a few days.

I don't know when I'm going to get to do my major winter project. The plan is to start when the snow flies, but it's been decent riding weather here. Oh well... maybe in January.

Thanks for the replies.

The "seal set" includes the dust seal... Here they are with prices.. I'd order the guide and the slider, they are both wear items... Keep in mind, order two of each part# (One for each leg) and perhaps an extra set of seals in case you booger one up or as a spare should you or a friend need it...

26 SEAL SET, FR. FORK 51490-MCA-003 002 $12.35
15 BUSH, GUIDE 51414-MCA-003 002 $2.60
16 BUSH, SLIDER 51415-MCA-003 002 $2.60

But I have to ask... why the bolts?--your question


I included the bolts, which are the bottom bolts. They will get pretty chiggered up in most cases with removal. Better to have replacements handy. They are supposedly -one- time use. The 8mm washers are sealing/crush washers that are used with the bolts. Note that the left and right forks use different size bolts, thus the different part numbers. The washers are the same for both sides.

Soloquest;

The bottom/drain bolts can be quite a hassle.

I suggest that you don't address them until you have the forks removed from the bike. Avoid stripping out the hex head on them by using a lot of TLC and and gentle tapping with an impact. Double check that your allen wrench is fully seated.

They are loctited from the factory.

I caused myself a lot of grief when I rebuilt my own the first time...I didn't follow the above hints.

Get new "O" rings for the fork top plugs too, better safe than sorry.

Soloquest; the the parts drawings have key numbers that match up to parts numbers if you scroll down a bit on the pages. The numbers are there. Hal's new site is a bit easier to get to show the numbers. Good luck with your project. I still have not recieved the seal kits; theya re on BO :cry:
