A smooth ride with SKF’s new fork seals
Motorcycle front suspension forks perform two key roles. First, they keep the wheels in contact with the ground, improving the grip and therefore the rider’s control. Second, they absorb shocks from the ground, thus improving comfort.
To meet these expectations and to offer enhanced, reliable protection of the interior front suspension components, SKF has developed the Dual Compound Fork Seal Kit. It consists of a dirt scraper and an oil seal, featuring new sealing lip geometries and newly developed, co-molded rubber compounds. In addition, a new metal insert and an open-wound spring on the dirt scraper lip help to prevent the contamination ingress.
