VOR Paioli Kayaba 46mm Repair Kit

Recommended Posts

I have been looking all over the forums for a link or a clue as to where I can buy a repair kit for the Paioli Kayaba 46mm inverted forks. I have them on my 2002 VOR 450 EN-E and they are leaking, again. My old fix isn't sufficient enough anymore and I am looking to replace the seals and what not.

I have read places that the Sherco 4.5i had the same forks on them and also that Kawasaki has a repair kit that works on them as well; however, I have not been able to get much of a lead on to where I can buy this 'repair kit.'

If anyone has any information to where I can buy it please help a fellow VOR rider out as I wanna keep putting the miles on this beauty.

Thanks,

Just went through this. The seals will continue to leak until you replace the bushings inside. The tubes wander when they are worn, then the seals go. Several aftermarket sources carry them. Parts unlimited had them.2002 YZ, seals and dust covers. All better now.:banana:

Yah, I had fixed my left front fork with a little help from my engineer father and his customizable skills, but it is time for a longer lasting fix.

I checked out Parts Unlimited and Searched the Year, Make, Model option as a 2002 Yamaha YZ250 <Suspension Group-Front> and there is item 04070022 - FORK SEAL/BUSHING KIT - PIVOT WORKS - $74.95. Does that look about right? Just want to make sure I am getting the right stuff, I also got a quote from Vor-Racing.com and they where wanting $43.95 and $41.50 NZD each for the Bushing, the the Seals would have been like $30 off ebay.

      I just bought an '02 605 super motard. The manual says the forks are Paoili. The previous owner says WP. Anyhow, the compression adjustment is on the SIDE of the fork at the bottom. There is no "turn all the way clockwise til bottom, then count the number of clicks out" as is typical. The screw just continually turns. There numbers 1 - 8 clockwise in a circle around the screw. I'm a Clydesdale so I set it at 8. What forks are these ? Do I only get 8 compression settings ? Is there a malfunction ? Thanks in advance. Mutt

      Just picked up an '02 supermotard with extra dual sport wheels. Waiting on a battery but everything seems dialed in. Where can I get parts ? Is it the general consensus that the stock carbs aren't great ? What's the alternative. I'm gonna have lots of questions. Thanks in advance for your $.02. Mut

      My wheel has some pretty serious lateral movement. I dont have a truing stand but my buddy could lend me a spoke torque wrench. Would I be able to eliminate the lateral movement only using the the torque wrench ?

      First of many posts hopefully

      During January we filmed a commercial for Mitas Tyres here in South Africa. It took 2 months of pre-production, 1 week of filming and 3 weeks of editing to arrive at the final video.

      The riders were David Ellis on the off-road bike (Husqvarna FX450), Altus De Wet on the enduro bike (KTM 300 EXC TPI) and Louis Knipe on the adventure bike (BMW R 1200GS LC)

      I've had heaps of questions of how we went about filming the video and so I've decided to open up the line to whatever anyone would like to know.

      Ask me anything.
