    Default Bike front suspension (CD-185 Twin)

    Hi all, I was noticing while getting work done on my CD 185 that the front suspension is sort of worn out as I need to pull it upwards. Is it repairable? The chrome of suspension is also fully gone. Can anyone tell where to get it repaired? Preferably in DHA or nearby

    If i am not mistaken, its called hard chroming, and can be done by any other shop which offer this kind of service. (I am not sure where to find them in Khi)

    Anyway, if fork legs are not bent, and are otherwise working fine ... hard chroming them again will bring out the shine and make them smooth again.
    Riders on the storm ... literally.

    I think they have leaked their and seals are also worn, one side. Where to get them fixed?

    Get chrome/polish done on the forks, genuine seals are available. I bought for 1000 Rs (here at isb). Make sure to use proper fork fluid (or atleast ATF oil as its less effected with temperature variation).

    Thanks a lot, that's good news that fork seals are avaible. So dead shocks can be reconditioned then? I've already ordered fork oil which is usually used in Harleys.

    That's not expensive I think. My dad got two seals for his Honda shadow for 6k. For a pair.
