    Yes

    While i don't have personal experience with them, by all accounts on this forum, they are excellent, and the web site has decent instructions.

    Enduro Seals are the best thing I and my friends have done to our seeping forks; they are almost mandatory for most forks. Fox should just buy the company and have their stuff come stock with it.

    why get them anyways? i haven't had any problems with my manitou seals. just clean the stantions after your ride. you would be better off saving that money and applying it towards a better fork.

    nevertheless, i would e-mail enduro and ask them to be sure.

    I suposse you are from Venezuela from your Nick, I`m from Venezuela too and I`m runing enduro seals in my fork. If you want more info just PM.
    But Chris at enduro seals (www.enduroforkseals.com), is the most indicated person to answer all your question. He`s a great man to talk about everything your fork needs.

    Hope that helps!

    Cuidate, hablamos!

    Enduro kit out of dimensions for axel comp 2005...

    Tried to fit this on my Axel Comp (80mm) and noted a 1/8 ap. of clearance on casting fitting, writed to Chris in order to get the rigth part, bellow is mail for him, i know that he have a really good service, sure this gonna solve!!!


    "Chris, good morning,

    Yesterday tried to put my enduro kit for my axel and the dimension of
    the part that get inserted on fork casting (lower part) isn´t same
    than original seals, your kit is smaller that manitou one, the seal
    get inside with 1/8 aprox. of clearance in diameter!!! isn´t necesary
    got put in freezer in order to strech they for fitting.

    Package indicates rigth part, for manitou Axel, mine is model 2005, i
    don´t know if Manitou changed dimension this year. Exact model is
    Manitou Axel Comp, 80 mm travel.

    The inside (work part) dimension of the enduro kit is fine, tried
    sliding it on fork leg and really noted a tigth fit and a clean work
    of getting dust outside, sure works if they are mounted on casting
    lowers.

    Wath can we do to get the rigth part shipped to me?

    Thanks in advance"

    This was news to us that the seal head dimensions were different on the 05 Axel Comp. We are not likely to make a new wiper just to fit the Axel line. Unfortunately all we could do was refund the customer's money and apologize for the hassle. We'll have to make a note of it on the website. I'll try and get the details from Manitou, but I know our wipers fit the 2004s just fine:
