Fork Bushes - 501-750

Fork Bushes - 501-750

 

Fork bushes are the internal bushes within a motorcycle fork. The components are Teflon coated to reduce friction and aid fork action. The bushes are split into two types which comprise guide and slideOptimal clearance between the components and the fork tubes ensure their are no nasty knocks and a smooth action throughout the travel of the forks. Over time, the Teflon coating will wear, it’s at this time when they need to be replaced.

Fork guides are located in the fork outer, immediately underneath the oil seal. Fork slides clip onto the stanchions and move with the tubes. 

We supply fork bushes from NOK, the world's largest manufacturer. A product of Japan, they are the choosen manufacturer for 99% of the worlds leading motorcycle producers.

If you are servicing your forks, you may wish to look at our range of fork oil, fork seals and fork springs.

If you’d rather have us service your forks for you, we do offer a fork refurbishment service.

How do you measure your forks guide bushes?

We list the majority of our guides by make/model/year of bike but we also list by size. Guide bushings are measured using the following format: Internal Diameter x Height x Wall Thickness, in mm. For example, a motorcycle fork with a 43mm stanchion may use a 43 x 15 x 2.00 bush.

How do you measure your forks slide bushes?

We list the majority of our slides by make/model/year of bike but we also list by size. Slide bushings are measured using the following format: Internal Diameter (plus 0.70 mm for clearance) x Height x Wall Thickness, in mm. For example, a motorcycle fork with a 43mm stanchion may use a 43.70 x 15 x 1.00 slide bush.
