Fork spring buffers

Postby Steve Harding » Thu Aug 29, 2019 6:06 pm


Is there a technique to fitting the rubber buffers onto the stanchions?
1 1/4 forks, the I.D of the buffers is approx 1'' and they are not very stretchy.
Thanks in advance

I lubricate the stanchions with Waxoil and the buffers slide on easily - re-coat the stanchions with Waxoil after fitting the buffers to ward off corrosion in use.
