'06 fork parts

The rear shock on my '06 was used up, so I finally decided to have Washington Cycle Works do the suspension. Turns out I should have done this a bit sooner.

First, Yamaha shows the fork tubes as being no longer manufactured, but that they have a few left in stock. However, after some delay, the eventual conclusion is that they cannot actually find them. As such, I'll have K-Tech fork tubes when this is done.

Second, it appears that someone was previously in the forks because the "cup" at the bottom of one of them was damaged. The guess is that it wasn't seated properly when everything was reassembled and so it got dinged up. The part number is 5LV-23173-00-00. Apparently this also shows as being available, but Yamaha doesn't actually have any.

Does anyone have a source for one of these? So far all my mechanic has found is entire forks where the fork is bent badly enough that he suspects we'd find the cup inside would also be damaged.

Thanks,
Scott

That is the oil lock piece... damaged forks shouldn't hurt it, it's pretty well held in place. I suspect it was damaged while outside the forks... or on re-assembly, somebody did not ensure it was lined up before sliding the fork tube in.
As long as the ID is ok and no burrs on the outside, functionally it should be oK. The cartridge goes inside it. If you order one, it may have to come from Japan.

The mechanic says that it appears not to have been lined up properly when reassembled before. Plan B is to have a machinist try to clean up the burrs on the outside, but if someone knows of a source for a clean, used one, that would be ideal. And unfortunately, Yamaha doesn't seem to have any more, even in Japan, hence this plea. Thanks!

If the forks were disassembled, it's easy for one to forget the oil lock piece is in there. Putting the fork tube back in might result in some damage if it got out of place. The way to do it is put the tube in first (Gen2//3), put the oil lock piece on the bottom of the cartridge and slide it in (fork held horizontally in a vice), then install the lower bolt to the cartridge. OR, install the cartridge first and the tube later (as you must do with Gen1). IF the damage/burrs are on the outside, no worries, just clean them up and use your existing part.
