Was rebuilding forks with a all balls fork kit one of the damper wear rings grew legs and walked off on me. Can anyone give a link to a correct one to buy please ? I have spent hours and cannot find one only other option left is to buy a fork off eBay just for the wear ring.

Yep, that's the damper piston ring and you have to order a complete damper piston assembly (over 100 bucks) to get one from Kawasaki. That's not gonna happen but someone here on the forum has got to have one kicking around.

I might be wrong, but if I'm reading the fiche correctly then that part is part of a bigger assembly and can't be ordered separately.
that is the wall I keep running into on locating one aswell .

agreed can buy a fork for that price off eBay . So mad at myself for losing one . Hard lesson learned .
Thanks for confirming it can only be bought in assembly guys .

maybe you can find a bent fork out here from someone who replaced it

that was the final option to be honest . Haybaler says he is putting one in the mail for me today so I have been blessed with keeping a few dollars to put towards a oil change and speedometer cable… since I have bought the bike I have put new battery , new front sprocket , new chain , new front and back tires , new front blinker set , new front and rear brakes , front fork bushings and seals kit. I appreciate all the guidance this form has given . The lost wear ring was what got me to create a account. Long time listener first time caller ;)
