Hi, after some time using the DUC 32 on my bike i realized that it is a very good fork and the more i use it the more i love. The other side was that thanks to some oil leaks my front brake had become unussefull so i decided to change the seals of my maverick.
After reading some posts about it i noticed that the enduro seals are not the best solution as the wear is excessive.
I decided to make a try with the new (almost for me) FOX low friction seals made by SKF and all i can say is that it works for now. My biggest doubt was that the seal had different outer dimensions but yesterday afternoon i tried to install them and they are direct fit.
On the left side of the next pic you have the stock seal and on the right the fox one.
To remove the old seals i used a screwdriver in the way you see in the next pic.
And the final pic with the seal fitted. The white thing is some soft glue i used as sealant. I think that it is not necessary but......
I went for a short ride braking hard and jumping and for now it works fine and low friction thing seems very attractive to me, i haven´t noticed anything different from the old ones except for the absence of leaks. I will write some better conclussions after some time riding with them.
