    Ktm 125 keeps blowing seals

    I think I'm bleeding all out keep bleeding till the damper rod has resistance from bottom to top and vice versa then setting the oil gap 110mm with a proper motion pro fork oil level tool the one thing I have noticed is if I bleed air out of fork caps the forks do get air in them even just sat there

    Ktm 125 keeps blowing seals

    Yeah installing the seals the right way and with a seal driver c clip in and seat and dust seal seated it doesn't blow the seals out of position it just leaks oil every time these aren't the first forks I've rebuilt I've done loads on other makes even other wp units but these just keep leaking and it costing me a fortune even considering getting new units and doing away with these funny three bushing units

    Ktm 125 bushings

    Hi I have seen a lot of stuff recently about the third bush removal and the third bush reversal plus drilling new holes in slider for oil flow which is best I ride mainly woods and find the standard mx set up harsh but wonder which would be better cheers
