50 fork seals

Recommended Posts

Hello

got an 04 crf50 with leaky fork leg. I've changed seals on a few other bikes but these forks are pretty funky looking. I couldn't find a thead on it, but is it a pretty straight forward job?

thanks

in the stock CRf 50 forks there is no oil. All that is in the fork tubes is the spring and bumpers and they are packed with grease. I just put in heavy duty fork legs and heavy duty springs in my 06. Assuming you have stock forks still on your bike the stuff "leaking" is probably grease just being pushed down the fork leg. They are very simple to work on though, just have rags ready because they are greasy!

It is just the dust seal allowing grease by, if it doesn't bother you it won't hurt the bike.

no crap? that's awesome. Looks like I will "fix" my neighbors 50 with 10 seconds of paper toweling.

thanks!
