08 crf450r leaking green fork oil?


Recommended Posts

I don't know how to work on forks but i do most of my own work on her. i noticed the fork oil on the garage floor this morning. Seals I assume are shot, I've never messed with them so their stock. I would like to get them softened for trail riding so maybe I should send them out for that before fixing or what am I looking at here. Thanks

I would try a Seal Doctor for $25 before I change the seals.  I installed some SKF Seals (Great Seals) and they started leaking after @20hrs.  I tried the 35mm film trick several times and they still leaked.  I was just about to order some new seals and decided to try the Seal Doctor.  A couple of swipes and they haven't leaked since.  However you should be changing your fork oil every 30hrs depending on how you ride.
