Need some advice please.

Recommended Posts

So my left fork seal was leaking I do the trick of pulling the dust cover down and using 35mm film I got the dirt out everything's fine now I did however lose maybe 2 to 3 tablespoons of shock oil should I be concerned and how hard is it to add some. Also just out of curiosity if your crank bearings are bad would you know it and how not saying mine are I'm just curious I want to learn this thing. Thank you

Your crank bearings are probably fine. They rarely have issues prior to the crank itself wearing past spec.

The only real way to know is to check the play in the crank. As far as main bearings, unfortunately you have to pull the motor apart to check them and if you are going in that far you may as well replace them.
