84 fork rebuild. Is OEM kit all that is needed

I think my fork seals are too far gone for just using the seal mate tool. Massive amounts of fluid all over. But I will try it first just to make sure.

Is part #39 seal kit all that is generally needed to do the seals. Do you guys recommend a different brand over OEM. What other parts might I need.

You need 2 per motorcycle (one for each fork), price listed is for one.

I see how #17 is listed my 1200 only has one per fork just like part #16.



I replaced the the rubber in the anti-dive like part #30.



I had to drill part #57 out so I changed 57 and 60 the washer.

I replaced all the rubber boots and o-rings because I plan on riding this bike until I can't get any parts for it anymore. And then ride it till I can't fix something important.

The LORD is my light and my salvation--so why should I be afraid? The LORD is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble?

Strange, all GL1200's appear to use the same fork tubes and bushings but the 1984-5 shows two bushings on each tube while 1986-7 shows just one.

Advise given here is free and comes with no warranty "Caveat emptor"

I don't have it tore apart yet so I don't know.

I'm just trying to figure out how much all this will cost to see if I want to tear into it right now,,,,lol.
