Enduro fork seal for ML7.2 rear shock?
Came up with this insane idea: Will a DUC32 aka SID enduro seal fit in the rear shock so I can ditch the gaiter?
Why would you want to ditch the gaiter? Messing with the seals in the rear is a HUGE pita. I replaced one once and it ended up shredding the sides of the seal getting it in the frame. I ended up using another seal, but it still tore the sides some. It held air, but it isn't something you want to mess with unless you have no choice.
Someone at Retrobike has a Palomino without a gaitor and it looks pretty cool, but I am afraid I will ruin the internals without a gaitor. [as I don't know how good the seal works!]
That's the Palomino I was talking about.
Use the Maverick fork seal, blue or black. Enduro seals wear stanchions very fast and have a lot of drag.
If you ride where there is not a lot of water, at all, and you dry rag clean the bike, yeah, don't use the boot.

Just FYI, I´m Wasmachineman and I am now using a RockShox 32mm seal in my ML7.2 shock!
Sorry to bump such old thread, but is that seal still working?

I know I get the seals from Ethan of Alpatech, in fact I don't need any seals at the moment.
But I have a doubt on my mind...
-Original DUC32 Seals work in the rear shock correct? at least the manual says so.
-Seals from Manitou, Rock Shocks and I believe FOX work in DUC32 (Max pressure 150psi)
What is different from the original Maverick seals so they can handle 250psi in the rear shock?Material? Design?
Hope someone can clarify my doubt =) Happy new year for all you
