fork seals-Will they go bad

Recommended Posts

I have an '02 CRF450 which I had the suspension done by Factory Conection approx 3 yrs ago. I rode for 5-6 races and then pulled the engine to do an overhaul. Long story short I now have the bike back together and I noticed my fork seals were weeping. Can they go bad with no use (get stiff/brittle) and prolonged periods of no use. Should I replace them ? OK another question, what is the fork oil measuring tool called :thumbsup:

Go ride the bike and see if they seal back up. If they dont then get some new ones.

Find a graduated cylinder @ a scientific supply house to measure fork oil for the TCs Showas.
