I need to replace the seals on my 1800 trike and wanted to get some opinions on what brand to get.


Thanks Dannie

I put a set of all balls on my 2002 www.allballsracing.com. You want to get fork bushing kit and also the fork seal kit

The question was fork seals. Right?

The OEM seals are readily available.

Why ain't we ridin'?

OEM would be my recommendation - replace the bushings while your in there too...

Sometimes the seals aren't bad. Just got some dirt in it. Changing the fluid and cleaning the strut is all you need.

All I wanna do is ride, ride, ride!....And enjoy every minute of it too! Used to own a GL1500!!

When I did mine the bushings were pretty bad shape at 41,000 miles. I found big difference in way it handled. But I did put new springs in also.But I really do think the the all ball fork seals where beefer than the OEM
