you will need two of each of the following part numbers (assuming the bike in your sig is the one you are referencing) :

3VD-23115-00-00 (guide cover)
5VU-23145-00-00 (oil seal)
3VD-23156-00-00 (oil seal clip)
3VD-23144-00-00 (dust seal)

You will also need:
41mm Fork seal driver and bullet.
A liter of Fork oil (not quite sure on weight yet)
Some Ultra Slick Seal Grease

Oh, and hopefully it didn't leak on to your brake pads, cause you'll need to replace those too. You can't just clean em off. And those aren't too cheap. :(

I went to partshark.com I think it was somewhere around 60$-70$...
You will need two of each part number listed. Total.

I would also recommend having a pro do it.... not only will you be making sure it is done correctly, you will be supporting your local dealership and mechanic during slow winter/holiday times.

My right fork did the same thing to me this summer, I don't remember how much I spent. I want to say upwards of $170.

Yea should probably cost you around $70 with oil for the seals, clips, and dust covers. You don't need to buy a sealdriver either if you don't want a slotted piece of PVC with a zip-tie to tighten around the fork tube is all you will need.


or you can use a plumbers clamp(note this one is for 45mm fork tubes)



or a one of these fittings cut in half like this with a some zip ties to hold it properly.


This is the motion pro driver that will cost you like $40-50. Not much difference to the one above other than the construction material.

proper height of the fork oil is critical.

Excellent idea, especially considering PVC won't nick your fork tubes or stanchions. A schedule 80 fitting could probably be bored on a lathe to the correct I.D. for a nice tight fit.
