Leaky fork seal, lesson learned....

Recommended Posts

I had a fork seal that was leaky and decided to change it out.

I used an All Balls seal and expected great results.

Guess what, it leaked again.

After going thru all that give, I replaced the piston and metal slide in both forks with Yamaha parts.

OMG, what a difference!!!!!!


My point; if your gonna do the forks replace everything, don't cheap out, and enjoy the ride!!!!!

You need to check the inner tubes very, very closely for any imperfections, any pinprick and it will leak some more.


After cleaning the mud off em, running a ladies nylon up and down em a little is an easy way to look for and find imperfections IMHO..
