    Fork Bushings discontinued?

    Was talking to an Aprilia dealer and they tell me you can no longer buy the fork bushings for the 09 Dorso-you can only buy the complete fork.

    Does that sound correct??

    Had to replace the seals because of a leak on the left side. Held for about 2000 miles, then started weeping again. Fork alignment is good. Replacing the seals for the second time(with SKF) and figured I might as well do the bushings while I am in there.

    I hope not, but I doubt it. Parts are generally supplied for 10 years after a model is discontinued (e.g. the commitment by Victory motorcycles).
    Have you checked online on the AF1 site?

    Yes 10 years is pretty standard. Guess I will check AF1 and see what I find.

    If they are not available from Aprilia, AF1 or Aprilia UK may still have some in stock.

    If not, I'm sure there are other manufacturers that have the same size part that will work. All Balls makes the seals, as well as wheel bearings. I don't see the bushings, though.
