fork seals
« on: October 07, 2021, 11:20:39 PM »
Are fork seals available for the DT175. The manual says it requires a special tool to disassemble the forks- any idea what this tool is. It looks like a T handle allen wrench. Thanks for any help

To change the seals, just remove the chrome nut and slide it up over the fork tube. The seals are in the nut. There are sometimes issues with removing the nut; search the posts here for several discussions on ways to do that if you run into problems.
