What's happening?!

Just joined up and wanted to say hi in the proper place before I use the forum for a parts number search for my motorcycle.

Well,,,, this might be the first time that someone posts a "Your not going to believe this" post that you will actually have a hard time believing but I am in search of the part numbers for a fork seal kit for a set of Marzocchi RAC50 forks that are on my Harley Davidson & believe you me I use every ounce of oil in those forks throwing my girl through the curves on roads like US 129 Tail of the Dragon, Draggin the Alpine, or the Twisted Sisters in Texas and any road in between that the typical cruiser bike rider gets white knuckled on. :-)

Yes, I know it is like putting lipstick on a *ahem* 'pig' but I do indeed have a set of those forks on my XR1200 and obviously there isn't a snowballs chance in hell I could find those part numbers at the local stealership and I am led to believe these forks were used on some Ducatti and MV Agusta bikes so I wanted to check these sites and see if that rebuild kit # was easily found. So far no luck but gleaning through threads is a time consuming endeavor. I have yet to find a way to post a picture of my girl to possibly convince you that I am not a madman jerking your leg when I say that my XR has RAC50 forks, Progressive rear piggyback shocks, 330mm front rotors with Brembo monoblocks, rear sets, and as much carbon fiber and light weight parts as I can find to lighten my chubby ballerina with size 13 shoes but she is all mine and I love her and need desperately to fix my front fork seal I blew out today when she unexpectedly skywalked on me when I hit second gear. Had some work done on the 1970's tractor technology engine on the bike done last year and while the HP numbers are a bit anemic compared to my ZX14 at the house but the torque numbers are good enough to bring a grin to a jaded rider and she caught me out today hitting second and I had to bring her down rather briskly and not for the first time on those seals.

I am presently away from my house where the manual for the forks is at and I will not be going home for a LONG time and it is bike riding season so I am hoping someone has mercy on me and can come up with the parts numbers for those fork seals so I can get my girl back on the road.

Thanks for the welcome and I truly am not insane, crazy maybe but not insane.

I forgot to mention the FMF titanium Apex exhaust and forged aluminum rims. I HATE it when the pictures don't post the way I turned them but the way they were taken.

No, I am presently in a hotel in Bloomington Indiana and the tools I have with me are your basic set you might carry in your truck not to mention that I don't have my lift and us fat old people have a hard time crawling around on the ground working on our bikes.

Those do look like the dust seals on my forks though! I need the oil seal part numbers as well unless that part number includes both the oil seal & dust seals. Thanks, I will look them up.

800093364 is the matching oil seal and they both are for the Showa forks on the 99-03/4 F4. I also have a set of dust seals for the Marzocchi 58mm (8000A4690) if you need me to measure. Good luck.

The XR1200 originaly came with the Showa forks but were not adjustable and most definitely under sprung so I bought the Marzocchi RAC 50 set and a custom tree with a slightly different rake to replace the pogo sticks. I will keep looking. Who knows, they may actually be the same part numbers for both manufacturers.

I say this with love,

That is the most riced out HD I have ever seen. I like it, no I LOVE it. I hope you find the parts to get you going again.
