Tarozzi Range Expands

Replacement motorcycle fork stanchions

Pair of Tarozzi Fork Tubes for Suzuki SV 650Wemoto’s range of high quality Italian-made Tarozzi fork tubes has just expanded to cover even more popular Japanese and European models.

The range of high quality, fork tubes are made to the same specification as the original equipment, but with an upgraded hard chrome finish which is more robust and corrosion resistant than the ‘show chrome’ used by many original equipment manufacturers. And yet, a set of Tarozzi forks often retails at a far more reasonable price than the originals from £99.58 per fork.

Fork Bushes

Fork Bush Outer PairAdditions have been made Wemoto’s large range of precision, high quality fork bushes, now including fitments for a range of both on and off-road models.

 

Fork bushes take a hammering on all machines, but many parts suppliers often overlook them, stocking only the more commonly replaced fork oil seals. But worn fork bushings can cause excessive play between the fork tube and the slider, resulting in sloppy, unpredictable and even dangerous handling, as well as causing damage to the other fork components.

Adjustable Fork Seal Drivers

Fork Driver SetReplacing fork seals if often one of the first things a rider starts doing at home, and fitting everything back together (often “in the reverse order to which it was disassembled” to quote some manuals) can be rather tricky.

Fork seal drivers won’t help with bushings, springs and other fiddly bits. But they do make getting those oil seals in good and proper a great deal easier.

More importantly, by applying equal pressure across the seal surface there is much lower risk of damage to the seals (which of course, means taking everything apart all over again) than with other methods.

As these drivers are adjustable for fork sizes 26-45mm, when it’s time for the old bike to switch hands there’s no need to splash out on new tools.

All Balls Wheel Bearing Kits for On-Road Bikes

Wheel bearing kit for BMWsWhen wheel bearings are becoming worn and need replacing you’ll notice a change in the handling; it may become vague and unpredictable over uneven surfaces. Left unattended the bearing can deteriorate quickly, resulting in a collapse or seizure. This is likely to stop you in your tracks.

Once this has occurred, any other bearings on the same spindle will have become damaged as well. For this reason, it is highly recommended that all bearings and seals are replaced at the first signs of wear.
