    Hi all, just looking for options as I am in the need to replace my fork tubes due to pitting issues. I’ve looked on eBay for good replacements but most are junk/crashed, I see the Chinese sets and would rather not chance them just in case. Right now my left fork continues to eat oil seals and I need to replace soon. Any ideas on where to find best value for the $?

    Unfortunately not, I forgot to add to the post that this has already been tried as well with very fine wet sand paper.
