KYB Forks....

Recommended Posts

2008 KLX 450r Changing my leaky fork seal opened up fork to find that the 'free piston' black plastic piston inside the fork had ruptured. Apparently a common problem. Any comments or suggestions?

same on my son's. Check out TBT racing, they say they have replacements and we're calling them today. I checked the part and you have to buy the entire assembly, retail is $179.00! I watched a video Travis from TBT did on rebuilding these forks and that's how I found out. Go to Youtube and search Kayaba or KYB fork rebuild, good instructional video. Travis has a great reputation in our So Cal circle.
