DRZ 250 fork seals

hi all,

I have gone through a few threads and see that it is worth replacing my fork seals myself but i have one question

as my suspension isn't set up for me as i onlt got the bike a short time ago should i have a shop do it so that they can set up everything at the same time or should i do it myself and then take it to a shop to set up as that would probably cost less.

battyes bikes are the ones that service my bike anyways

any info/advice would be great

cheers

mark

Hi Mate,

I would do the seals on the bike yourself, then set it up yourself.

Make sure when you change the fluid you put the right weight fluid in for your weight. Then when this is done, adjust your compression and rebound on the front and the sag, compression and rebound on the rear. There are plenty of good guides on the internet such as:

http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/sho...d.php?t=330794

I know the second link is for the 400, but it gives you the general idea about how suspensions works.

Im not sure about the DRZ, but i know you will need something to push the seals into place. There is either a metal thingo you can get from a bike store that is pretty much a tube, or you can use a bit of PVC pipe to push them it.

Have a quick search around, specifically thumpertalk and see if you can find any more info.
