Re: 95 front forks

The fork seals should be what you need. Do both forks at the same time, even if only one is leaking.

Re: 95 front forks

If your dust seals ( the ones you see ) are cracked or hardened buy new ones. If you are able to, buy new fork bushings. The reason i say it is Honda recomends you change them all at the same time. When seperating the chrome tubes from the lowers it requires a "hammering" slide action which essentially uses the bushing as the hammer that drives the sections apart from each other.

I've redone the seals on my 95, if you need help just ask.

Re: 95 front forks

Ok I noticed that I have the same prob. I have never attempted a fork seal job so I am probly gonna send it to the shop.

Does anyone have any suggestions about what I should tell the shop to do? Should I just tell to them to replace the seals and bushings? Anything else while they are in there? What should I expect to pay?

Ps. Only 2k miles on the 95 and already a leak!!

Thanks for any help.
sorry for the jackin the thread!!

Re: 95 front forks

Locally in Phoenix Arizona the going rate to replace bushings, seals, and fork oil is $150 if you bring the forks in off the bike. about $250 if you bring the whole bike in. This is most likely based on $60-80 hr labor charge. I'm not sure what they charge in your area per hour. The price included parts.
You shouldn't really need any other parts. If your chrome slider tubes are scratched you may have to replace them at around $400-600 a pop. Light surface scratches can be smoothed down with 1000-1500 grit sandpaper.

If that includes the seals, bushings and oil, that is a fair price.

Yep. If the tubes need replacing, that would definitely be the time to update to the 929/954 upside down fork front end and 17" wheel!

Re: 95 front forks

If you're replacing the seals you want to check the forks to make sure you don't have any nicks or scratches...otherwise you'll be replacing them again before you know it.
