43mm seal driver


Recommended Posts

It looks like the 426 uses the 46/47mm driver.

Thanks for the offer. I will try using the old seal again tonight.

I make sure the old seals are clean, and the hammer is clean.

Never let the hammer off the inner tube when swinging. (to prevent denting)

I even stack both old ones to ensure the proper depth is reached.

Cleanliness!! Good luck, it's always the things that should be easy. -BIG DAN:thumbsup:

DO NOT USE A HAMMER. Always use a rubber mallet when dealing with breakables.

Keith have you tried a PVC pipe cut in half? My buddy has has one (sanded and smoothed out) that has been used on 43, 47, and 48mm tubes w/o any troubles.

AS I said before, hammer, mallet. tomato, tomato.

1990 200cc? I used the old seal and a soft faced dead blow. Works for me everytime. Mines an 86 though... -BIG DAN:thumbsup:

Yeh I had two different sizes of PVC. I cut them both in half and rounded the edges so it wouldn't hurt the seals/bushings. What really helped was putting the old seals on over it and then using that to drive it in. I used a non-marring mallet to pound it in. I still need to do the other fork but it worked out pretty well. After that I just need to put fluid in the forks, replace the bearings on the stem, assemble the entire front of the bike and back to riding I go!

I cant wait!
