Recommended Posts

Are the 2009 KX450F fork Seals Same as previous years? I want to order the MSR fork seals for my 09 but dont know if they will work.

I don't believe they are. Think they are a little different for less stiction. But previous year kx450f seals will work as well as 06-09 YZ stuff.

all 48 Kayaba seals will fit

As Chris already said, the 09 seals should run somewhat smoother because they come without an additional (sealing) spring.

That's good for less stiction but with the cost of higher propability to leak sooner.

It's the same difference as the WP standard and SXS seals.

alright thanks guys, I ordered the msr fork seals, they worked great for me in my previous kx450f, never leaked. The only thing I heard though was that they have more stiction but I couldnt tell.

30 odd hours on the first set off seals, replaced when did the suspension but here goes for another 30+.
