HKC? Google let me down.
I ended up getting a few sets of the OEM blue seals a while ago, but haven't swapped them in yet. Don't tell me they are sticky junk...
I do still get a little more stiction than I was hoping for.
One day when I feel rich I will buy a fork rebuild kit with all the bushes.
Hope you are having a good time!
