i have the front of this bike in pieces and was going to install new seals in the forks. Had a dealer install one side and the retainer broke after the new seal was installed. Looks like i need new tubes. this is the problem, the dealer can't get the same tubes as the ones on this bike. they say they are Kayaba ,which i believe is not OEM. some people i talk to say they are. any info i could get on this matter, whether it be a place to buy or just advice , would be appreciated.
thanks

The kayaba forks are original equipment on the older sportys. Around 33 or 35 mm if memory serves. Gonna be hard to find what you want. Why not consider changing to the 39mm Showa? Ebay has a set bidding cheap right now. link
