Beta2Stroke 19 200rr weepy fork seals

Recommended Posts

bike has under 10 hours on it and the front seals are starting to weep.  

is this a common issue with these italiano pieces of awsome looking crap?  

i kid, i kid,  rode the thing for like 3 minutes one time and could right away tell it was indeed awsome.  

asking for a friend!

Mine don't weep at all.  I ride in dust and now mud.  But...I always wipe down the fork tubes after each ride to remove any surface contaminants and water spots (that contain abrasive minerals).  Your friend might try to clean the seals with a film strip or commercial product and put just a tiny bit of grease on the dust seals.

Get a seal doctor or other piece of suitable plastic. Just takes a few bits of dirt between seal and lower. My left seal was leaking after a sandy muddy ride and there were several.pieces of sand I removed, it has been fine since. You can also get seal savers or scrapers.
