|mrseedsower||The dust covers for the forks, is there a part number for it. I have been to the Kawasaki dealer to look for the part but it doesn't show up in the picture of the forks layout for parts. Not sure what to get. Help please. Here is the link to the parts page from partzilla.com http://www.partzilla.com/parts/searc...ORK/parts.html|

everything looks good on the fork. This bike has sat for a while and I think the boots just have dry rotted. Got to get the front brakes going first to be able to sit on the bike and see the condition the forks are in. I haven't had to rebuild these but I did on my CB900 so I know a little going in if I had to do that.

agreed, if it looks ok when you pull the dust seal off (dry, no corrosion, or dirt) then you possibly can get by with just the dust seal. if you see ANY of the above, you probably should change the oil seal as well.
and as mentioned, not difficult in itself, just takes time and a cool head. if you need to change the oil or put in new fork springs, its the time for that as well (although they can be done without the oil seal being disturbed as well).

if the dust seals are shot, you may also need to replace the oil seal right under it, due to dirt/water contamination.
good new is, you CAN change the dust seal without totally disassembling the fork (just have to remove it from the triple tree and slide it off the top), however the fork oil seal is another story.

If you are reffeRing to the dust seals at the top of the lower leg ,yes.. Good news is they are the same as the80's sportsters they are easy to find and cheap enough.

top of forks
The rubber boots on top of the forks are gone. Are they that necessary?
