What would be the biggest culprit for letting water into forks besides seals? Just redid for forks today. Last rebuild was when I got the bike last winter. Seals are good. 30 hrs on forks since last rebuild. I had a fair amount of milkiness to the oil, especially down around the base valve. Last time I did the forks I didn't replace the copper crush washers on the base valve, were original. These looked in pretty bad shape and I replaced them this time. But they weren't leaking any oil...... Orings top and bottom look good. Both forks were equally bad, never had milky fork oil before.... Same fork oil I always use. Could the old crush washers have been letting moisture in, but no oil out?
