    crf450x forks

    hi can anyone tell me the purpose of the snap rings at the bottom of the outer fork tube ( gold part) on the outside not the one that holds the oil seal in. im just about to put a new bushing kit through my forks and i noticed there is a set of them in there but dont know wat they are actually meant to do . cheers.

    They are to keep the Fork Guard from rubbing directly on the upper tube and wearing on it and/or thru the anodizing , as the suspension travels up/down ..... ;)
