Do we need them?

For those of you not familiar with Enduro seals, a quick search of the MTBR forums will be an education. If you want some light reading...

..I mean I can understand that Fox fork owners want to change seals but WB? I have had nada zipp leakage or dust coming in on my BW 0.8.
Anyone had any problems with their WB:s?

Can you post some pictures of the installation sequence when you replace your seals?
Sure, although it's going to be a little while as I've got a full plate.

I seem to recall there being install photos on Enduro's site, but I'm too lazy to double check right at the moment.

Honestly? Yeah. Every fork I have owned has benefitted from installing these wipers (with the exception of some '96 Judy lowers which were incompatible).

I've installed them on a '99 Judy, a '01 X-Vert and Z4, and in each case I've seen an impressive reduction/elimination of contaminents and in some cases water. They're very precise wipers. I don't know if White Brothers has been using something different in the past two years, but my CX-1 can stand the upgrade.

BTW, these seals have nothing to do with air leakage, if that's what you were suggesting.

I have this Judy Race converted to Total Air Englunds dampers for weight reduction, the fork is sub-1300g with a long steerer. I was advised to also have the White Brothers seals/or wipers installed, as they were supposed to be the best. That's some years ago, though.

If the Enduro's are so much better, I wonder if WB themselves could be persuaded to install them when overhauling a fork for us?

That would be nice, but they are in fact very easy to install at home during routine fork maintenance.

White Brothers new OEM wipers will be Enduros.
