    Default 41mm Showa Fork Seals

    I ordered Fork seals and wipers two weeks ago from the local Ducati dealer and they have not come in yet nor can they tell me when they will be in. Does anyone know if there is another brand bike that uses the same seals and wipers? I want OE quality seals as I don't want to have to do the job twice. I think I noticed that on a set of seals on eBay they said they fit a Suzuki also. Does anyone know which model Suzuki may use the same seals and wipers?

    Thanks! You wouldn't happen to know what year models would you?

    I've got a pair of new unused/still in their original package "All Balls Racing" double lipped leak proof seals.
    They're yours for £20 inc' the postage, as I now run Ohlins forks.

    Yeah, these seals are not working. The ID of the seal is too large. As soon we put them back together oil began seeping out. Looks like I will be back to the OE seals. At least they should be here by now.

    Does anyone know these forks intimately enough to tell me which direction the spring seat in the bottom of the fork faces?

    Iíll tell you, but at a price. Can you put up the size of the OEM seal here so we all know. id is easy as itís the fork staunchion diameter. Use vernier calipers for od and height. Then we all will know what size they need to be. Same goes for anyone changing ohlins. Seals and bearings are made on mass for lots of applications not just a manufacturers bike. Once you know exact sizes, supply through a specific bike manufacturer becomes obsolete. Which is import as models fade into history. Just ask your dealer what the upper bevel bearing is on a single and youíll get the point.
