Are All Balls fork seal and bushing kit any good?

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?

i have used them with no problems.

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.

I have read that even though they are not first rate in comparison with oem and skf, the allballs kit works better than the more expensive kit from pivot works.

Ordered, and installed!

They looked like they fit pretty good, time will tell if they last!

:thumbsup:

what are these skf seals and dust sliders yall keep referring to?

iv already ordered a complete seals and bushing kit from pivot works for my upcoming rebuild, but i would consider these seals yall keep referring to next 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

all balls stuff sucks, pivot works lasts longer but I'm an oem bearing and linkage fan

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

I'm going to ASSume the "K" is KYB, the "W" is WP, and the "S" is showa

it is

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

thanks guys
