Been awhile since I last visited...I've got a '98 XR400 that I can't keep fork seals from leaking. Bad. The seals (I've installed 3 sets over the past few years) keep getting progressively leaky, quicker. The first two times I used Honda seals, the last time was aftermarket. All seals have leaked, obviously badly enough that I feel I need to replace them. The last set of aftermarket seals leaked after two rides. Some background: I don't ride that often ( a few hundred miles each summer), I have checked the run-out of each slider tube (less than .001"), No visible or "feelable" burrs on the sliders, I follow repair manual proceedures each time with usually Honda parts, a buddy suggested that my aftermarket fork brace might be preloading a "tweak" in the forks. Ideas?
