Is there a difference in quality between aftermarket and Factory fork seals? I have a 1990 kdx 200 and want to do the job right, but would also like to save some money if I'm not sacrificing quality. Thanks

hi Duke,
some aftermarket seal do not have 2 tension spring on it. They normally have only one spring.

It will be better to get original fork seal with 2 tension spring, helps prevent leakage.

I've had no luck with aftermarket seals-OEM is probably the best bet.
