Default 2010 Sachs Fork Seals

Does anyone know what size the fork seals are for the Sachs, and are there any crossover parts available.

Cheers Brad

yep you can use the ktm 48 x 57 x 9.5/10

I hate to say this, but i think they are better than the GG ones. Especially if you use a degreaer to clean your bike, the GG ones tend to dry out and get v tight on the forks affecting suspension

The SKF seals are outstanding, no need to use WP (imho). When i had a -03 with wp43, they constant leak and i was changing about 3 times a year... The SKF have last for 14 month, and the new replacement was really smooth and easy to install!

reason i said the skf were not good is:

1 It is impossible to remove the dust seal without damaging it. I do this every time i ride muddy stuff and i remove the dust seal and clean out all the fine dirt with wd40

2 when i adjusted the oil level i had to really push the tube down over the inner which led me to believe that they were very sticky and/or tight.

maybe it is a result of the detergent i use (prepsol) but the ktm seals slide better (and as a result will possibly weep)

Allways, allways use silicone spray lube, and stroke them after spraying, on your hard chrome tubes and shock shaft after washing with harsh detergents.

I have found wd 40 to shorten fork seal life- it attacks certian types of rubber. Dont reccomend using as a cleaning agent for seals.
