I purchased a 2005 Wee as a project bike. I'm trying to get it in good mechanical condition. I noticed that the fork dust seals have small cracks in them so I figured I would just rebuild the forks. Does anyone know of a good aftermarket rebuild kit for the stock forks???? or do I just need to order each individual OEM part??:confused:

My suggestion would be to check with SV Racing parts, or go to Race Tech for one of their complete kits.

The fork seals are cheap as from fleabay but if you are looking to rebuild, you will prolly want some new valving and perhaps some new bushes.

I did mine for $270 Aud form fleabay and buying the gold valves from race-tech :yesnod:

I've learned the hard way to not waste time and money with aftermarket fork seals.

It's very unlikely that anything inside the forks is damaged or worn -- just replace the seals and dust seals with fresh bits from Suzuki.

I would have totally agreed with you up until a couple of weeks ago. I did a complete fork overhaul on my 30,000 mile TLS suspension, and ordered new bushings just because. Dang glad I did. The teflon coating was going away and there was just a miniscule of play developing in the tubes vs sliders. They would not have lasted another 30,000 miles with just a fluid and seal change. I have never encountered bushings wearing out this fast before. I wonder if quality is going downhill with the new oem parts.

Exactly my findings on aftermarket seals.
