    Remember to wipe.

    The Fox Dust Wiper Kit works with Fox’s ultra-smooth Kashima coating to make Fox forks some of the smoothest-functioning in the industry. Unfortunately, dirt can eventually cause the seals to leak and will need to be replaced when the fork is overhauled.

    Fox partnered with legendary seal manufacturer SKF to develop it slow-friction fork seals. They are an important first line of defense in keeping your fork functioning smoothly.

    • Designed with SKF
    • Kit contains dust seals, lower seals, and crush washer
    • Item #FRS0106

    Seals the Deal

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Had some leakage on my 34, swapped out seals, and the leak is gone!

    Removing them took some effort as I was scared to just manhandle them, but that's pretty much what I needed to to.

    Installing new seals was a pain to get in level and pushed as I don't have the install tool; I don't really have a trick for them.

    Wipey Wipey

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Wipe the dust off your stanchions so they don't get inside the fork. I usually change these on my forks at least once a season, more if I've been riding in nasty weather. These work great, make sure you have a dedicated seal pushing tool so you don't damage them when installing.

    At some point you will need these

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    As others have said, try to replace your seals and oil once a season at minimum to keep your fork running smooth. I sometimes fall behind and get lax with suspension service. Changing seals and oil makes your fork feel like new again, and reminds me why you're supposed to do it regularly. It will prolong the life of your fork if you do.

    Crucial maintenance

      These should be in the tool box of every serious rider. Forks take a beating throughout the course of a season and changing the seals/fluid is critical. Plus they are very reasonably priced.

      Great seal kit

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Excellent design and made of premium materials. They fit so tightly it's unbelievable. These Greatly reduces static friction on the fork Seals on its first service.

      Make your fork buttery again

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Kind of spending for what it is but you don't really have other options. Easy to do yourself and makes your fork feel great once again.

      Fresh forks

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Look up some youtube videos, gather your parts, and spent a night in the garage freshening your fork up. Your seals take a lot of abuse, make sure you pop some new ones in before it's too late!

      what I needed

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Got these for my Fox forks. I went by the description and fit my forks great. Came with a few extra parts for other models, but came with all parts required to do the job.

      be careful, image does not match product

        silly me, I went by the image but did not search for other examples of flangeless dust wipers. The image on the website shows the old style dust wipers, not the flangeless ones. Dont make my mistake, double check which ones you have before ordering..... especially before pulling the old ones out of your fork like i did :-/



        in my picture the old seal is on the left (the one shown on the website) and the flangeless seal is the one on the right.



        I gave it 5 starts because i have replaced my FOX wipers many times before and they have always performed flawlessly :-)

        Preventive Maintenance

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Fox recommends to service your fork every 60 hrs. There are hundreds of how to videos on you tube to help you service and rebuild your fork. These seals are the factory seals that fox uses on all of their forks. Comes with seals, dust wipers, and crush washers. You will need to purchase fox suspension oil and lint free rags too be able to change out the seals. If you have questions feel free to shoot me an email at ddalton@backcountry.com

        Show your fork some love.

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Besides my own fork I have done several for friends. The are always amazed by the improvement and how dirty the old parts are. If you wait more than a year there is probably zero lube in the lowers and some excess in the air chamber. Expensive part to let go to hell when it is so easy to service.

        Doin' it on the cheeeeeap!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Lazy approach scenario: You go and drop your bike off at the shop... They charge you anywhere between $30-40 bucks for this kit, and then another $50-70+ for the labor. Adds up quick, doesn't it?!



        Watch a few vids on the internets, and seriously, you're good to go. The first time doing it may take some time; be patient though, once you get it dialed in, the second and third time will feel like a breeze.



        Show your forks some love already. Drink a beer afterwards, or do what I like to do, during and after.

        Get your self some.

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Even if your not going to perform the task, they are probably cheaper than at the shop. Don't find out the hardway and have you shock serviced. Clearly it all depends on how much you ride and how often you will need to do this. The kashima coating will get worn away easily below the seal after time if you don't change these seals.

        Huge Improvement

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Pretty straightforward product here... but if you are wondering whether or not it's worth it to service your fork, IT IS! Grab this kit and some oil and you and your fork will be glad you did. Keeping fresh seals and oil in your fork is essential for performance and longevity. Rebuilding the damper itself is quite a bit more involved, but if you aren't comfortable with that you can just do the oil and seals at home fairly easy with basic tools and skills and that will still be great for your fork! Then maybe at the end of the season either take on the damper service, or take it to your local shop, or send it off to Push.



        All you need (besides tools) is this kit, fork oil (for my 2013 36 float 160 fork I needed 30ml of green 10 wt fork oil in both legs), and a couple of float fluid packs. And here are the instructions I used:

        Unanswered Question

        My Fox Float RL shock dates back to about 2002 or 3. do I need a different wiper kit?
