Fork Dust Seals

Post by matt bristol » Sun Apr 29, 2018 11:26 am

I recently rebuilt my forks for my 3TF and replaced the dust seals, but the replacements are different to the original ones.

The original seals fitted against the oil seal and under the retaining clip, however the replacements sent by wemoto fit outside and do not allow me to fit the retaining clip

Not had this before , do you reckon I have the wrong dust seals?

Mine too, ended up looking like this Image with a gap cause you cant push the dust seal all the way since the circlip is there


Looking at ebay the dust seals come shaped differently from different manufacturers. I still don't know which are the right ones
