Front Forks Rebuild page 2 of 9

Front Forks

during our Mexican-Dragon trip, a front fork seal failed and started leaking fork oil. And before long it ran dry, and the fork started clanking. Not good.

Do one fork at a time.

Whoever rebuilt these forks before I bought the bike, added this extra spacer. And that caused the seals to fail.
