Hey guy's. I have a fork seal leak and will be changing out the front springs and seals this weekend. I was wondering, if anyone has used a piece of PVC to correctly impact the seal into place, and what size diameter PVC did you use. The seal measures out to 1 3/4 inches. Did you use the 1 3/4" or a 2" pipe.
Any help would be appreciated.

Well I'll buy both and I'll let you guy's know what I find out.

Fork Seal Installation

I used the old fork seal and laid it on top of the new one. Then take a soft hammer and gently tap around the circumference of the old seal driving the new seal into place.
