My SEI use a PAIR of 35-47-7mm fork seals. Two are stacked up in each fork. From the original drawings, that appears to be the original specification. There is no seal retainer, just a press fit. I have set of Pyramid seals that are the same ID and OD but 10mm deep. They are DOUBLE lip seal units. Planning to use ONE in each leg. Anyone else done this? Comments?
Agreed, but not the SEI. I have three sets of fork legs, all the same, no retainer. I even checked original parts drawing 16A, no cir clip or locking ring....... weird.
Jim..... I’ll do the same. Do the Guzzi forks have a retaining clip or are the seals just pressed in place?
They are just dust seals, not like other bikes that stop oil from coming out of the dampener. The shock absorber is what dampens the ride. Very little oil goes in the leg. I just got a seal from the local for me (KY) bearing store.
Considering how little oil is actually in the fork leg, surprising there are a pair of seals and a dust cap!
