I have read that there are special tools needed to replace the fork seals on an 82.

Do any of you know if this correct? Thanks

You aren't the Art Mann with the TV show are you? (had to ask) :)



I just changed my 84 fork seals without any special tools. Have you searched the forum?

No special tools needed. You do need to make something to seat the seals with, I used a piece of pvc pipe split length-wise and then clamped loosely around the tube with a large hose clamp.

Ditto on the PVC. I just replaced the top bushings and seals using PVC.

Tools pvc pipe , hammer and c-clip pliers

I just changed my fork seals on an 84 and didn't need any special tools other than the PVC tool shown in the How-To. By the way it was way easier than taking the forks off the bike!

No not the TV show guy but my ol' lady wished I were on one so she could shut me off. Yeah I agree w/you guys about special tools. I read that stuff in the Clymers manual which is somewhat off base on many things. Thanks Fellas!!
