Ah yes, but to do it right you have to put a Triumph seal in an ES first, then replace with the correct ES seal..... in your case, have the RD seals ready but also a set for the DRZ... we'll get it right eventually.

If Ray helps me put it back together, the fork seals will get flipped and end up right side up then.

I plan on running these tires - just going to add some gorilla tape to the inside to keep them together about 90...

Looking good, cept mebbe that crack in your front tar...that you were replacing when the other stuff gets done.

I'm not sure, but from here it looks like the fork seals are installed upside down.
Black shoe polish on the outside of the tars. That theirs a tip from Burt Munro. How could it be bad advice?!
