NO!!!! I just had my son's showa forks and shock serviced for $200 even....

That was new seals and dust covers with oil and outer bushing in the forks...

But I don't use a brand (honda) type shop.

I would do it yourself if you have a little mechanical ability. Buy a fork seal driver and Cap nut wrench from Rocy Mountain ATV. Watch the videos on twin chamber forks (part 1 & 2) on the rocky Montain ATV website. Also read your Zook service manual while doing it. It is not that hard and you will learn something. Probably do it for about $130 including buying the tools, then you will have them for next time!!!

$375 to me seems very pricey. Seals should run about $50 to $60 dollars for both sides. About $25 for oil for both sides. Tools would run about $60. I have a buddy that does them for guys and he does them for $70 labor + the parts and oil. I think that is pretty fair.

This does not include the rear though, have not played with that one.

Ok, after watching the (very informative) videos I like to give that a try.

The fork seal driver I think should be a 46/47mm (is that a 46mm or a 47mm or is it just a single tool that covers both?)

The cap nut wrench, I guess that is both a inner and a outer - what size would that be?

Regards
