Ive got the Forks apart (only rounded 1 bolt :w00t: )
they were leaking badly, and each had about 200ml of oil left (of about 500ml).
i dont have a “4”, should i?
is this a “21” (this is the one ive rounded)
are there any other parts i would likley need after nearly running out of oil, how would i tell whats buggered?
i am ordering:
Fork Damper Retaining Bolt
Fork Dust Seals Pair
Fork Oil Seal Pair - Japanese Quality
Fork Oil Seal Retaining Clip (one is rusted to fcuk)
Yes you should have 4 its only a washer that makes the spring meet the spacer better… you can do without it its not critical but will change the length of the fork by a few mm
did you get the rounded bolt out? so long as you have the copper sealing washer you can match the bolt thread pitch and length with any bolt for a shop.
thanks, mostly sorted now, one fork rebuilt, the other one im doing tomorrow.
got the rounded bolt out, new "4"s in.
though 1 brush went in alot eaiser then the other (and further down).
will it damege the new seals if i take it out?
does it actually need removing?
