This is part one of a video tutorial on how to change your fork seals. These forks are from my 2001 Honda CBR600F4i.
**NOTE** Not shown in the video is the filling of the forks with oil. You will need Honda SS3 Suspension Fluid or an equivalent 10W fork oil from another brand. You need to have the SAME EXACT LEVEL in both forks. Also, you need to bleed the dampening rods...you do this by pouring a quarter or so of the fork oil necessary, then pumping the rod several times until it has a lot of resistance...then you pour in the rest.

DIY: Fork Seals Made Easy!
Dr. Dirt's Step-By-Step Fork Seal Swap.
Leaky fork seals are, for lack of a better description, a royal pain in the
neck. The most common ailment to plague front suspension, a leaky fork seal
can ruin your day by affecting your bike's handling, covering your front
brake pads in oil and generally just making a total mess of things. Most of
the time a leaky fork seal is the result of dirt inside of the seal, but it
can also be caused by a nick or ding in the fork tube from an impact with a
rock or stick. But no matter what the cause, a weeping fork seal needs to
be fixed, and oftentimes that means tearing into the suspension and
changing the seal out. Fortunately, this isn't as difficult as you may
Dirt Rider tech guru Scot Gustafson (the man behind the Dr. Dirt tech
stories here on www.dirtrider.com) insists that changing afork seal is easy
enough for most riders to do in their own garage. To help prove his point,
we filmed Scot changing a fork seal in the Dirt Rider tech center and
explaining step-by-step how he completes this job. You might want to
bookmark this video for reference because someday, no matter if you ride
motocross or off-road, you're going to need to address this issue!
If you have any additional questions, please feel free to email Dr. Dirt at

Tory's Custom F4i 600
I work at Taylor Collision Center and this is where the transformation took
its place. The Ninja was also disassembled and painted here as well. Troy
is in the Army and he wanted us to PAINT his bike and make it look sharp.
Troy had no idea that when he would see it again that it would look like
this. We couldn't figure out if it looked more like CARBON FIBER, SNAKE
SKIN, OR THE DIGITAL ARMY UNIFORMS. To me it looks like the motorcycle
version of the TRANSFORMER - BUMBLE BEE, either way it is completely custom
and is clearly a one of a kind Sport Bike. IT'S AN 02 CBR F4i

exaktere Fertigungsmethoden dennoch hohe Dämpfungspräzision. Der viel
größere Kolben der BPF wirkt sich positiv auf das Ansprechverhalten aus.
