Hope I'm posting in the right thread area. I need a source for 41mm fork seals for a 71 Rickman. Preferably one that someone has bought them from and been satisfied and maybe even a part number. A Google search says there is a Harley part that will work but the OD I have found is either 53 or 54mm and I want a first hand experience reply to save delays.

Thanks, Daron

Daron,

You might want to stop by my shop to see what I used in mine. The actual measurement is 41.28mm, or 1.625". I'm not sure what the outer dimension is, but suspect 54mm. There is a Beck/Arnley seal, 052-3318 that I think I used. I originally bought some from Lynn Wineland of Steens', but they turned out to be wrong for mine.
We're racing in Savannah this weekend, so I won't be back til Monday.

Try Penton Racing or speed and sport. If no luck there, for generic seals in all sizes: Best Parts Online

Stuart, missed you by 5 minutes today. Hope the weekend went well. You still looked healthy when I was going down the road next to you. I'll call before I head down next time.

Daron
