If your seals are leaking, I've got something for you to try first. There's a product out that's simply this plastic film shaped like a fat hook. Slide it under the seal and use a scooping out motion to dislodge any grip that's under the seal. Keep scooping and wiping and withing a short time there won't be any debris under there and the seal will "seal" again. I've done this to 2 bikes and the seals are like new again and have not started leaking again even after many tough rides.

The thickness of the plastic is that of x-ray film. See your local x-ray lab or chiropractor's office for used film. One sheet can make dozens of these things.

I do take the forks off the bike to get better access but you can try it with the forks in place if you want.

Good luck. :thumbsup:
