Bought crf250r. Forks had leaked enough to ruin brake pads. Figured I’d try this before teardown. Worked great!! No more leaks. 5 rides at mx track since without a drop

Like the rest of these reviews, literally thought my fork seal was torn or ripped, so I simply cleaned them using this "tool" and have not had so much as a drop leaked from what I can tell, even after several hours riding in Moab, UT. This is your cheapest option to rule out bad seals by removing typical dirt/grime/debris between seal and fork tubes.
a few years back I had a leaky Fork took it to the Ducati shop they told me it needed to be replaced charge me $500. 3 years later current date April 6 2019 a month ago same problem different side ..saw a video about Seal Mate copy the design cut the piece out of a water bottle used it as instructed no more leaky Fork save myself $500 and it cost me only the price for the water which was $2. I'm wondering now if that, was what the Ducati dealers did ..and ripped me off for $500. live and learn.
I bought this a few weeks ago and just got around to using it, simple and effective!
This is good but just buy a Seal Doctor that will last a lifetime and its easier to clean your forks with.
I had the left fork leaking bad, thought I would have to take apart the forks or take to a dealership to fix, bought this tool and used it to fix the leak myself. So easy to use and fixed the problem within minutes. It took me longer to open the package than it did to stop the leak... lol.
MOTORSPORTS SHIPPING IS SUPER FAST every time. You cannot beat their customer service either. Its been 20 years since I have rode or owned a bike, and they have answered every question no matter how simple or stupid it might have been. Also their prices cannot be beat by ANYONE. I buy everything from MOTORSPORTS....
This is basically a peice of paper, not worth the 6 bucks. If ur looking in buying something like this spend the extra 15 on a nice one. But in the end it's 6 bucks and what do u expect
I purchased this because one of my fork seals was leaking on my 2008 CRF 450R, and used it as instructed on the youtube video for the product, and my fork stopped leaking. It pulled out a lot of dirt and grime from my seal.
Been racing a stock suspension crf150R and im way too heavy for it. over 200 hours of riding im safe to say ive cleaned the same seals like 4 times with zero issues and leaks
I used this on one of my shocks and it worked well so far.

Question answered by RockettUser's contributor status:Question answered Over 10 years agoAnswer: A: The Sealmate slips between the forks and the fork seals. Once inside you circulate the Sealmate all the way around the fork. Doing this cleans out any dirt or debris from between the seals and the forks, allowing your seals to be able to create a better seal. They work great in my experience!
Question answered by james718User's contributor status: MotoSport Staff ExpertQuestion answered Over 10 years agoAnswer: A: this will clean out any debris that will get caught in the fork seal and wiper. cleaning the fork seals will help the seals last longer.
Question answered by crmanUser's contributor status: Top 1000 ContributorQuestion answered Over 10 years agoAnswer: A: you use it to clean out debris from under the fork seals, which is the common culpret for leaking fork seals.
Question answered by TC338User's contributor status:Question answered Over 10 years agoAnswer: A: Use a thin blade flat head screw driver to gently pry your dust seal out first, then take the "hook" end of the seal dr and slide it under the fork oil seal and make a circumferential pass around the fork tube then pull it out. Do this a few times until you clear the dirt out of the seal. Then press your dust seal back in place. This will ensure your clean contact between the fork oil seal and fork tube.
