Fork Seals.

Post by karlos on Tue Jan 10, 2012 6:01 pm

Need the fork seals done on the YZ, again!! Anyone have any recommendations as to where I can get them done, usually use Morgans in Cardiff, but not so convenient now I'm not going that direction to work. Anyone been to Ray Cowles?? Preferably Cwmbran/Pontypool/Newport area.
Cheers,

Karl.

I rate Ray Cowles high its the only place i trust to leave parts or my bike, to some it may look old school in the shop that's because they been there for ever. Don't let this put you off they have a modern workshop at the rear & they really do know there stuff.

Yeah, +1 on Ray Cowles.

They have forgotten more about bikes than most other places know.

Had mine done at Ray Cowles... fitted them then did an event. Couldn't ride the bike, it was everywhere, had to soften the forks as much as I could and let some air out the front tyre to take some of the impact...far too hard. Wasn't happy.
