Blown fork seal

Recommended Posts

Today when I was riding I noticed a new sound coming from my forks. I would wheelie off a drop-off and when the front slapped down I'd hear a clunking sound. After the ride when I released the air from the forks a smudge of oil seeped out around one of the air release screws. Does this mean what I think it means (blown seal)?

I didn't hear any air escape, but then I usually don't unless I've been jumping ALOT at the motocross track. Which I wasn't doing today. But some air must have come out or it wouldn't have pushed out the oil. It was only a little oil, just enough to make a small ring around the screw.
