Required Tools: Needle Nose Pliers, Box cutter (or Dremel), 10mm socket and ratchet (optional)
Warning! Sharp tools are used in this installation. Take proper precautions to prevent injury!
Remove the plastic mud wiper with a box cutter or Dremel tool. If your motorcycle has aftermarket mud wipers, remove the mud wipers by removing the cotter pin and pull the wiper off the fork by hand. (If necessary, remove the long plastic fork protector by removing the three bolts with a 10mm socket.)
2. Clean the surface of the upper and lower fork in the areas the wiper will contact or cover. It is best to clean the chrome surfaces with light weight oil. Brake clean or alcohol can make the surface too dry and ruin your forks internal seals.
3. Wrap the new mud wiper around the fork with the tapered side down and place the alignment groove on the upper fork tube. Install the cotter pin using the needle nose pliers. You may have to squeeze the wiper with your hands to line up the holes for the cotter pin.
Go get dirty!
Cleaning instructions: Your mud wipers include a washout hole feature. This is generally not enough to properly clean the fork. When you clean your fork, please remove the mud wiper and use the spare cotter pins provided to re-install.
