The dust seals on a YB8 I'm restoring were cracked and pretty useless.

On spec I purchased a set of these KTM 250 41.7mm dust seals and they are a good fit on the YB8 Marzocchi 41.7mm fork, nice quality, and cheap.

Here is the UK sellers ebay page, they arrived in Australia in like 5 days.

They also have fork seals which I guess would also fit, though have not tried them as yet. I'll let you know...

Fork seals (yet to be fitted or confirmed to fit)

Cool. I've used Pyramid Parts fork seals on different bikes but not a Bimota. They seemed to be enough quality and like you say, cheap.

Yes, the dust seals were nice and shiny, and highly elastic, I was impressed.

I purchased 3 sets (with rubber grease included in each kit) for the same price I purchased 1 set of Ducati 851 41.7 seals (also a good fit) locally here in Aust. And they only took 5 days to arrive from the UK!

Whats the chance they have 50mm sets as I can't get mine down to run my seal cleaning tool around the leg to see if it stops the recent seal/fluid weeping I am seeing.

Otherwise, does anyone have a link for new fork seals and dust seals?

Edit: I just checked PP and they appear to have some...but I don't know which size I need. does anyone have the specific dimensions?
