hi cheaper to buy 15w motorcycle fork oil and you don't need judy butter, just a suitable thin grease for bikes that is useable on fork seals.......save your cash :D

is there a date stamp on the lower legs anywhere ?.........boy you did take them apart.

If all there is to' top out' with is a small black rubber stopper and a plastic black plastic holder i'm not surprized there's a klunk !

I'm trying to locate the right year exploded manual...so i can check what should be in there ........

it looks like i have a serial no 08JL701650 cant see any other numbers bar the patent nos
i think its 98or 99 fork
Was thinking now i have them this far apart how hard is it to get the seals from the top of the lower part of the forks would have given a go at painting them would love sid blue

Marc

found this with just about every fork on it says there 98
