Are All Balls fork seal and bushing kit any good?

Recommended Posts

I want to order a fork seal and bushing kit for my '00 YZ250.

The brand I can get the fastest (next day) is All Balls. I was wondering how they compared to OEM ones. Are they reliable and will they last?

Bushings seem to be just a touch on the this side but most of the time pose no problem . The seals leave alot to be deisred .

I would use OEM bushings and SKF seals and be done with it:ride:

sorry thought this was a shock seal head, on the forks the seals work but have too much stiction, the dust seals are a joke, never tried the bushes, skf every time.

what does the letter mean at the end of the fork size example:

SKF Fork Oil and Dust Seal 48W... or

SKF Fork Oil and Dust Seal 48K

Pete is being nice,

the oil seal goes in tight and some folks even get it upside down

the dust seal?? Not sure how they can call it a seal

Use OEM or a very good quality aftermarket:thumbsup:

I can't keep track on how many sets I've taken out and found the bushings where shot -they let the mud and sand pass thru not good
