fork seal leak

Isn't there a trick to try before changing them??

Just picked up the bike and it is great.



I pull down the dust boots and run a .001 feeler guage between the fork and the seal. Sometimes it will clear out the dirt in the seal, other times it won't.

If you've got any tearoffs, you could try insert one of those, or some 35mm film strips. It helped me for a while, but eventually they still needed replacing. Just got mine back from having some Race Tech valves and the right springs put in and its like riding a new bike. Hats off to the folks at ProPrivateer in Texas (nope I have affiliation, other than the money I spent). :D
