front fork leaking fluid!!!!

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, so my bike has been sitting over the winter and a couple days ago i noticed a oil spot underneath the front tire, at first i thought it was brake fluid but i looked closer and the fork tube has a coat of oil covering it and the suspension feels like sh!t .

So my question is what do you think caused this, bad fork seals? that's the only thing i can think of, if so how hard is it to fix this problem. Any advice is appreciated thanks!!!!!!!!!!!

Ps this is my first bike so please bare with me.

Look for video on utube for cleaning out fork seals with a seal mate, if that doesn't work seals are needed , again plenty of videos on how to do it
