I am not aware of a kit. I would have gotten one when I recently did mine.



You may want to look at buying progressive springs and replacing the bushings at the same time too. It will take a little part of a day to get it all done.



fork seals

fork circlips

bushings and guides if applicable

springs

fork oil



Wait until you have all the parts in hand before you start any work in case you get a delay on any part shipments.

Nice Bike !! I have the exact same critter, only with a few more miles.

I got my seals/wipers from the same place Steve did. Mins didn't come with washers, but you don't realy need to replace them anyways.

Check for play, with weight off the front end. If there is slop in the bushings, Ron Ayers (Honda) had the best price on 'em when I did mine - but Ron is definitely not in a hurry. :)

You really should replace the bushings as well. If you going into it why not. You could get the kit from ebay, but then purchase the bushings from Cheap parts or Bike Bandit or another source.

for leaky forks after new seals you must inspect the fork tubes. fill any pits/cracks or anything with epoxy or other sutff like jbweld and polish to create a nice flat surface.
