Athena are great.

If your All Balls are the red Clarke ones throw them in the garbage now to save yourself some time.

I wont use anything but oem seals. Had too many bad experiences with aftermarket.

Also my experience.

Nothing against All Balls, I use their linkage and bearing kits, but OEM fork seals seem to have the lowest stiction and last the longest.

All balls stuff is junk, i have wasted my time twice on them. Once it even puked fork oil on the way to the track hadnt even rode on it yet. Other set only lasted a few hours of riding. NOK or OEM are they only way to go.

Ditto, loved everything I got from Pivot Works recently. Fantastic stuff, and that dealer (forget the name) has terrific support for all their parts. I asked them some newby stuff when I was fixing up a used bike I bought and the support agent went above and beyond.

The PU seals are made by NOK, just like the Japanese OEM seals.
