Inner fork cap wear

Recommended Posts

Went to change my fork seals and noticed i had metal shavings in my fork oil. the bike is an 09 kx250f btw.

Started looking for the source of the metal and believe i found it. Looks like it is coming from the spring bouncing and rubbing the innner part of the fork cap. Its eaten away pretty bad. Anyone have this problem before? Cant tell if other parts are missing but the spring just seems to be in there loosely.

Any ideas would be helpful

you're talking about the ICS wearing off the inner part of your fork cap?

There should be a washer between spring and cap.

a pic would help

The IC spring should be loose when the comp assembly is removed. Frezno is right, there should be a thin steel washer between the spring and the cap.
