    I've changed fork seals on Honda Xr's and on Honda Shadows here in Thailand it's very cheap and alot better than having shit suspension...so don't worry just get the job done.

    Big City NakonSawan so should be a few Big Bike shops there who can do it. Easy Job so just ride around and pick the Best Looking Shop working on Big Bikes. Or ask some Local Farang who they use? Or just shoot either Down to Bangkok or Up to Chiang Mai and get it done during the Ride? Good Luck.
    Cheers Ian.

    You could try doing it yourself. I got fork seals on E-bay at a reasonable price and did them (Yamaha XJR1200) bit of a prick if you don't have the special tools, but passes the time. I live in Sakon Nakhon so didn't have any choice, I am also Scottish so I resent parting with money.
