Just a quick question, which I hope some of you helpful guys will be able to answer.
I was giving my sm a clean and took off the fork guards, no problems so far. I was just about to give the fork sliders a quick wipe with a rag when I noticed browny-black scuff marks extending downwards from the fork dust seals for about three or four inches. This extended about half way round both sliders to the front of each.
I thought that some dirt had got trapped under the dust seal and been smeared along the slider with the suspension travel, however checked and clean as a whistle. I also cannot seem to get rid of these marks and I'm sure that I can feel some slight scoring with my finger.
I'm a bit worried that something is rubbing internally and damaging the forks. Has anybody got any ideas? It's under warrently so I presume I should take it back to the dealership.
