oil leak from the right hand side fork, need to have the fork rebuild done it seems. Started looking for parts - OEM ones may take a while to get, and while the seals from some Japanese bikes will fit, I am wondering if there are any alternatives to the OEM bushings? It's a 47mm.

Thank you!

I'm wondering if they produce similar product for cylinder engine oil leakage.

Seal mate is to clean grit out from between the seal and fork.

This is a brand that St Paul Harley Davidson sells. I have had good luck with them as well.

thanks Shoggin, but my question was about replacement for OEM bushings, not seals.

Thank you Lew, this is definitely an option, but I am not in the US and shipping may take a while. I was hoping that bushings from some Japanese bike would fit, something I could pick up at a local dealership without delays.

Sorry can't help you there. You could try calling Race Tech Suspension and ask if they know of an interchangeable bushing. https://www.racetech.com/

thanks Shoggin, but I am in Canada, and that place is even further away than St Paul : ) I have already ordered bushings from St Paul, but hoping to find a replacement that I could pick up locally and get the bike back on the road ASAP before the snow hits : )
