$77.49 for a forkseal? LC4

Surely there is a better solution out there, anybody?
2000 LC4 (50mm forks).





This price was from an online vendor, my dealer showed them for around $60 each.

We're running Synergy seals in the 450's, 125 and 640A. Excellent seals and they run about $45.00/set.

What's in the "kit". If its all the seals (dust and oil) and bushings then that's not a bad price at all. If its for one oil seal

I get my Laverda fork seals from the local seal shop. I'm sure you have at least one in OKC. Take one in, I'll bet they can fix you up for $10- $15/ leg.

Hey, my thread is back from the dead. This is cracking me up, I started this back in June of 06.
The funny thing is, even though I bought some cheap seals, I've never put them in. I just cut the springs down and put them back in, they are still working fine, never leak...yet.
