    SR6 Stratos Fork Seals found some that work!!

    Yesterday, I tore down my blown out forks and took the old seals down to a local hydraulic shop. To my amazement they matched the inner 35mm seal!!

    One step further it's a better seal because it's a two piece instead of the OG c cup design. Nice and tight.. Only down side was I had to use a oil seal as a wiper, as they could not exact match the old wiper.

    Stratos used wear tape as bushings in two locations in each fork, only one of mine had scoring, can't find the exact type of wear tape but is ok because I was able to flip it around and use the fresh backside of the tape.

    Put it all back together with fresh 260cc of ATF and boom forks are plush again!!! Super smooth and have great full range adjustment. BUTTER!!

    Stratos SR6 owners there is hope in reviving your forks!! Just thought I'd share my experience.

    Note if you take your forks apart be extremely careful with the housing that has the wiper and seal in it. I used a 90 degree small pick to get mine out. It is super easy to muff up the threads and nick up the inside, treat it like its the last known housing available, because it pretty much is.
