Part: Standard Fork Seals for Honda CB450 K0 - K7, CL450 K1 - K6 Scrambler, CB500T / CB500K, CB550 / CB750K0 / SL350 K2
Why You Need This Part: Fork seal replacement is the key to a proper fork rebuild on your vintage Honda. If you are clever and watch our videos this can be done with the fork tubes still in the triple tree. This is particularly beneficial in case you are working on your motorcycle in a place without workbench access (like in the driveway or on the streets). These are what we call "standard style" fork seals, which are the same kind used in the factory. One pair per bike. Finish your fork rebuild with some dust boots, or fork gaiters and our tapered roller steering bearing your front suspension and steering will be butter.
Note: CB450 and CL450 models used various fork designs during their production run. Make sure to pick the proper seal size for your model. If in doubt contact us for help. Seals do not require spacers and may not necessarily look like the ones in the picture above.
*CB450K3 models had a fork change mid-production, the outer diameter of the seal must be measured to ensure the correct size is ordered.
