‘94 R80RT Front Fork Rebuild
« on: November 21, 2019, 10:10:26 PM »
Do any of you North Alabama vintage riders know a good shop or individual who can rebuild front forks? I have a complete rebuild kit but don’t know how to do it. Please let me know.

Hi Frank!

Are you replacing seals or changing up your spring rate? If you're just doing seals I'd advocate tackling it yourself. There's several youtube videos that have excellent walkthroughs on how. You can get a seal driver and bullet for around $40 shipped and knock it out in an afternoon or evening.
I'll never be old enough to ride a sportbike responsibly...

I’m changing springs as well, Wilbur’s progressive rate. I’ll check YouTube, thanks for the advice.
