  • Rear Shockie Seal broken

    gday all,

    I have a 1988 CBR 250R and in the last couple of days i noticed a fluid dripping from the bottom of the rear shockies. Im pretty sure the seal is broken and now I have no dampener and the back is really springy, and dangerous...

    How much do you reckon it will cost to fix and where should i get it done or could i do it easily enough myself?

    cheers for any help

    circa $150 for a complete rear shock rebuild, including seal and diaphragm, unless the shaft needs rechroming. The actual cost depends on the price of the seal.

    I went to Barry's Specialised motorcycle repair in willeton.

      have a look into a cbr600 shock conversion, i think that it may bolt straight on- dont take my word for it though

            I imagine so.

            Nah I dont, sorry mate. It was a few years back.

            In the yellowpages tho I think.

              fork seals are a whole lot easier to do, they arent a sealed unit

                ive rung a few people, like prestige honda, bike doctor and another that i cant remember, and no one seems to be able to help me because they dont have the seals in, then i rang two wheel wreckers, and they dont have them either.

                what should i do and who should i talk to to get this fixed??? anyone know?

                cheers
