    Hi, Does anybody know if it is possible to get hold of Funduro rear brake caliper piston seals. I have just looked on Motorbins and Motorworks websites but they are not listed.:scratch: May need to replace mine as I am getting some seepage of brake fluid from the piston, which probable means...

    for future reference, I dropped a line to Pyramid about my cracked dust seals just to let them know I'd had a problem with them. I made no requests for replacements etc. as I wasn't going to use them again anyway anyhow, I just got an email from them to say they were sending me a new set...

I wouldn't mind but I only replaced them about 1000 miles ago and there's no sign of damage :dunno: I'm just about to order some stuff from motorworks and I'm a little confused by the...

    :-( Hi guys, had leaky fork seals last year and decided to replace them before my trans-European journey. Got a little intimidated after reading through the manual so took the forks to my local and far more competent mechanic. 5000 miles later and one is gone again, so the proble could lie with...

    Hi all, I am in the need of a new seal for my front caliper piston, i ordered a seal kit from motorworks and relised when it arrived that it was for the rear caliper :doh: 2mm difference in diameter.

    I am a bit stuck replacing the front fork seal. I am rebuilding the fork and have the inner and outer tubes reassembled. I have not yet put in the seals as that's where I am putting the oil in. I am pouring the oil along the inner sleeve and it is slowly filling. The problem is that I have...

    ok guys i seem to remember a year or two back a thread about some so called leakproof fork seals i believe they were more like a large O ring type seal as opposed to the conventional oil seal type ..... luckily the seal decided to go a week after the MOT and not before ;)...

    As some might know, I am doing up an engine to replace my old one. I have had to remove a few of the shaft seals eg the gear selector shaft, water pump, clutch seal. These do not seem to be BMW parts as they should be used by alot of machines. My question is does anyone know where they can be...

    Hi All - I just contacted Infinity M/cycles today, as the brow seal on my Concept has worn in 2 places - it's 3 years old now, and the wear spots are directly under the runoff from the top plastic vent. Must be road grit etc. that's caused it. Anyway, what a faff getting the seals replaced is...

    More wisdom needed please :-D I need to replace the fork seals on the F650GS. Are the dust seals reusable, or do I need to budget for them too? :think: They seem to be around £12 each from Motobins, which seems a bit steep... TIA Adrian
