I've read a couple of threads about seal issues on the 450X and I'm definately having issues. I bought a new 09 about 5 months ago and am needing to put in my 3rd set of OEM seals:banghead: I've read about the alignment issue so have taken care to tighten down the left pinch bolts and then compress the fork a few times with the brake on before tightening the right side but have a new leak again. I worked on the fork about a month ago and replaced the bushings even though everybody says the bushings should be fine. They definately look fine but here is the issue I noticed. I was checking to see if bike was stable after strapping it into truck and I noticed that it seemed like I could easily move the bars quite a ways without the wheel moving. I duplicated this with the bike on the ground by putting the tire against the wall while sitting on bike and also by just holding wheel between my legs. I checked a brand new bike at the dealer and seemed equally flexy. With the fork leg off the bike we could hold the upper on the table and move the lower slightly. Changing the bushings didn't help:banghead: The lower bushing on one side seemed to go into the upper tube very easily too. Anyway just wondered if anybody else noticed this? Seem normal? Any suggestions??
