SKF, the leading global supplier of seals for automotive and motorcycle applications, has launched a new series of seals for motorcycle forks. Their extensive experience in the area of shock absorber seals has lead to a new seal that will enhance the enjoyment of your ride.
Even though operating pressures and temperatures in motorcycles are moderate when compared to a car or truck, there are some specific factors to be considered. Enduro or motocross forks are the most demanding applications due to a long stroke, high speed and contaminated operating conditions. In addition, there are special dust protection requirements due to the exposed position of the fork and the absence of protective bellows.
In these applications the rider is in direct contact with the front suspension via the handlebars. Therefore, the smoothness of fork movement is vital, as it has a considerable impact on steering behavior.
SKF Dual Compound Fork Seal Kits
SKF seal kits for motorcycle forks consist of an oil seal and a wiper seal developed to achieve superior sealing performance without stiction.
Motorcycle fork seals are a vital protective part of the overall front suspension system, with a crucial impact on riding comfort and trouble-free operation in the harshest environments.
Completely redesigned featuring exciting new technology adding to SKF, well established fork seal products introduced over 10 years ago, consists of two newly developed rubber compounds and new geometries for both the scraper lip and the sealing lip. The molded combination of compounds, together with improved sealing lip properties, offers enhanced followability on the fork tube for reduced friction and increased service life. There is an all new metal insert and a self-cleaning open wound spring on the dirt scraper lip, effectively preventing contamination of the seal.
