Fork seal parts...

Can anybody suggest a good source for the fork oil seals, dust seals and cap retaining rings? And I guess while i'm at it any suggestions for some new springs? If the good Lord is willing and the creek don't rise I will be slapping on some new Progressive lowering shocks today or tomorrow, assuming I ordered and they shipped the correct ones...

I'm getting ready to rebuild my forks and just ordered parts from cheapcycleparts.com

Got progressive fork springs from amazon.com

OK... Little more help... I'm looking at the diagram on cheap cycle parts and I don't see anything specifically called a dust seal... I'm guessing that it is the seal, fork - 92093 based on the diagram but can anyone confirm?

See link below. Thanks.

Yes, one is referred to as "Seal, Fork" (dust seal) part# 92093-1197, the other is "Seal-Oil, Fork" part# 92049-1230.

Guess I should also mention the progressive suspension fork springs from amazon.com are part# 11-1128.

The seller is actually PowerSport Superstore.

Here a link to what`s on ebay right now.
http://motors.shop.ebay.com/__?_from...+seals&_sacat=

These two auctions have both oil seals and dust seals/wipers included:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/KAWAS...item588d408fef
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Kawas...item336671da19

I bought the second set from Pyramid a year or more ago for ~$25 delivered. This auction has a bonus tube of installation grease. I think either one is a good buy. Just before buying mine, I priced out the seals from the local Kaw shop for ~$65 CAN.

What do you guys think about something like this? The thinking here is my forks are very discolored... I was thinking about painting them but I know painting aluminum can be a challenge and if not done properly the results will be less than stellar... These could possibly solve both issues of discolored forks and bad seals???

CapHAB cleaned his fork lowers with 400 and 1000 grit wet and dry sandpaper then polished with Mothers.
Check out this link. Click on his avatar to find his fork polish album.
