Stuck replacing fork seal
Replacing fork seals on my 05 DL1000. Started w/the right side, the leaky side and that went easy-peasy.
I figured I should do both, so I took apart the left side to replace it today. Everything came apart OK, but when I went to reinstall the inner fork into the outer fork, I realized there wasn't enough room to get the new seal in so I could install the metal O-Ring above the oil seal.
So I pulled the inner fork out of the outer and noticed that the slide bush wasn't seating into the lower fork - not one bit. I even bought a new one with the new seals just in case, but the new one won't slide in at all into the lower fork.
When I first bought my DL last year I remember someone posted something about how to fix this but I can't find it.
I guess I got really lucky on the first fork because everything just slid in and all I had to really worry about was setting the oil seal properly.
Has anyone gone though this and if so how did you slide that thang in !
