Just had an eventful ride home, and discovered my fork seal has blown.

Can anyone reference me a complete kit to replace all the stuff in the forks? Bushings, seals, etc. Im gonna go ahead and replace everything in both forks and get it out the way.

Thanks!

I got home and parked, then it looked like a dog wet on my wheel. MAN was i pissed at those dogs! but no dogs had been in garage. So i found it was oil and did the same as you.( got instructions and where get parts) The the guy at honda store suggested I get a "seal doctor" when he heard i live on a gravel road . I got that in May followed his instruction, checked oil level (what a pain) and have been riding a few thousand miles without recurrence.

As mentioned in previous replies, go with the OEM seals. When I had mine done the tech said that it was very important to re-polish the tubes to remove burrs and micro scratches prior to the new seal install. I haven't had a problem since and that was years ago.

Yeah, I am. Gonna clean up the forks and everything else chrome and aluminum real good while I've got it tore down.
