I'm a bit of a quiet lurker, in the UK.
My '95 GPz had a slight run in with the rear lights of small van a few
years back (clutch lever bent and fairing smashed but I stayed upright.)
Since then the fork seals have never quite sealed and one of the three
mechanics that have done them suggested the fork may look a tiny bit
bent. No-one else has noticed though.
A few years back there was a thread on possible for replacement forks
from other bikes.
Should I :-
- Keep replacing seals and hope for the best
- Find somewhere that reconditions forks (rolling and polishing ?)
- Replace with a set from a different bike (does that mean new brake
calipers as well ?)
There are precious few of these bikes about in the UK, so I'm not likely
to find a replacement set from a GPz I don't think.
Any idea of costs for these kind of things ? I've nice luggage racks
welded on and a set of stainless pipes so I don't really want to scrap it.
