Whilst riding home today I noticed there was some oil on the left fork Ride & handling didnt seem affected nor was it gushing or bleeding so I continued the remaining 50k's home, monitoring it closely. It appears at most, maybe a fifth of the seal is leaking / weeping & although initially a small film of oil was on the fork, when wiping it away and compressing the bars down a few times it isnt leaving a film now. It does however leave a slight black horizontal line showing where it was compressed to. At the top of that seal section there is some black gritty grease (about fingernail thickness) so Im assuming maybe its dirt that has got itself in there and caused it :? ??? Ive done a search on NR only to find 2 hits. One mainly discussed a worn fork boot ! Ive tried the suggestion in the 2nd post to squeeze a very thin feeler guage down between the seal and the fork leg to possibly help clean away any dirt BUT I cannot find anything that will fit arrrrg!! Im hoping it doesnt have to be a mechanic job :roll: Does anyone have suggestions on what I can use or do ??? Both seals look fine ie: not worn or cracked etc.
