leaky fork seal and rusted fork lock washer

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, i need some advice. i noticed one of my fork is leaking oil on my 250 exc 2016. when i opened up the dust cover i noticed there is some rust on my lock washer. i cleaned most of it off. i have just ordered seal mate to clean my seal. my question is should i jam loads of grease in there to stop it from rusting?

No grease, you will swell the seals and they will fail.... Just spray some wd-40 on it now. After you wash your bike, spray the chrome of the forks and jounce your suspension a few times. It force the water and dust out.
