Hi, Sughali consider changing both forks it just takes a few extra minutes since you already have everything removed for one fork and I am sorry you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Aprilia but despair not for a mere $10 you can download another one.

HOW DO I CHANGE THE FORK SEALS ON MY 1983 HONDA VT500C


cOULD LEAKING FORK SEALS CAUSE FRONT BRAKES TO FOUL? -- YES
You shuld get a manual, you must check the surface of the fork, if there are scratches, you will destroy a new seal.

I have a 2002 flstc , just replaced the " fork seals ", still leaking on left side. i was told to replace " oil seals " under the " slide tube cap " and spacer. will this...


Well, yes. The fork seals are located at the top of the fork slider un the "slide tube cap". This makes me wonder exactly what did you replace when you say that you just replaced the "fork seals". To get to these oil seals, you have to disassemble the forks tubes. Remove the front wheel and fenders. Down where you took the axle out, look up into the end of the slider and you'll see a socket head bolt, 6mm. Loosen this bolt before you take the tube out of the triple tree. Remove and repair one tube at the time. When you get the slider off the top tube, you will see a retainer ring in the top of the slider. The seal is under this ring. The new oil seals must be replace squarely in the tube. When you reassemble the tube and put it back in the triple tree, there is a specific amount of fork oil that must be added to each tube to properly refill it. You must use the "dry" quantity when refilling the fork tube because you disassembled and completely drained the tube. I'm sorry but I don't have this quantity of fork oil for this late of a model bike. I work on the earlier model bikes only.

good luck

THE LEFT SIDE OF THE HANDLE BAR SEEMS TO BE HEAVY THAN THE RIGHT HANDLE BAR.. SO I CAN FEEL THE INBALANCE WHENEVER I RUN THE CB IN THE HIGHWAY...


Lift the bike off the ground (front end), turn steering side to side, should be smooth all the way (not notchy), check your tyres both front and rear, uneven wear, warped rim, should spin freely and true (wheel bearings) than check for fluids on your fork legs, your front fork seals may be leaking or the oil may be due for a change!!

530 exc spacing between front fork & spacer


front axle installation: looking at the front of the bike:

slide the wheel into position and insert the axle from the left. with axle now through the right hand fork, install nut and tighten the left fork pinch bolts to secure the axle for tightening the nut. tighten the nut to 29.5 ftlbs. and loosen the left pinch bolts. now tighten the right pinch bolts and compress the front suspension while the left (from front) is still loose. now allow suspension to rest naturally and tighten all 4 pinch bolts to 11 ftlbs.
your done.......the axle is tighten against the rotor side and the other fork is then tighten in it's natural position so as not to cause premature seal and bushing failure and increasing stiction.

2001 yzf426 front fork leak


Each fork has an outer dust seal, and an inner seal inside of that. Dirt gets between the seal lip and the fork slider and causes the oil to escape. The fix is to have them (Both sides) replaced. You need a fork seal driver tool (Size specific for the size of the fork) and something to measure out the oil amount. It's not an easy job, if you have never done it. Also... if the oil has never been changed, it's due.

How do I change the fork seals on a 2008 Honda CRF 250 r? Do I use a special tool? Oil? How much oil? Thanks so much for your expertise. Do I put equal amounts of oil on each side? Inner tube- outer tube?


hi,replacing the seal is quite easy,although it will sound complicated,jack up or lift the bike off the ground so that the front wheel is in the air(about 12-14 inches should be enough,remove the front wheel from the bike,remove each fork leg,this is done by undoing the bolts(4 on each leg)the front fork is quite easy to work on just do one at a time,remove the dust cover from the top of the staunchion tube(larger diameter tube),beneath that dust cover you should see a retaining clip that holds the seal in place,remove the retaining clip(and dont lose it),the seal is now ready to remove,the easiest way that i know to do this is to force a screwdriver through the body of the seal,you may need to hit the screwdriver with a hammer as some seal have a tin backing plate,put a hole through the seal on each side of the fork leg taking care not to damage the chrome of the fork leg,then use the screwdriver to lever the seal out of the fork leg,to reinstall the new seal,put a smear of grease or oil around the outside of the new seal,slide the new seal down the fork leg and seat it squarely into the fork tube,very carefully tap the new seal into place being very carefull not to damage the outer surface,i use a small piece of dowell type timber to do this as the wood doesnt damage the seal surface,i use a small ballpeen hammer to tap the wooden dowell,once you have the seal seated down the tube you should be able to see the groove for the retaining clip,reinstall the retaining clip making sure it is seated corectly,replace the dust cover,if you are going to replce the fork oil or top it up do this once the fork leg is back in the bike,repeat the whole procedure for the other fork leg,once you have done the fork seals reinslall the fork legs back into the bike and refit the front wheel,to top up the oil in each leg,simply undo the large cap on the end of the fork leg,you may have to remove the handlebars to do this,be carefull as the cap will be spring loaded and can easily fly off if you are not ready for it,top up or fill with the correct weight oil for your bike(normally a 10w oil),check with your local honda agent for the correct quantity,normally between 400-500 mls,this all sounds quite complicated but is actually quite easy and can be done with a minimal of tools,each fork shold take about 1/2 hr to do...hope this is a help to you

2004 honda shadow 600 VLX leaking fork seal bike has 600 miles on it should I replace left and right if only right is leaking.


check first to see if the leaking fork has any rust pitting on the chrome,if it has and its a very small blemish then fettle it off first,and just replace the leaking seal,as the saying goes..if it aint broke dont fix it,if the seals had been in the forks for years and the bike not used then consider replacing both..

Front fork seals on 1999 cbr 900 leaking


hello and welcome
with the cold weather these seals are very apt to show leakage especially with age. the rubber seals become harder in material and will leak. the cold just helps with that and is more apt to do so then.
there is no good product that will work on these and fix them well enough to where they wont leak again soon. the best fix is the get the seals replaced. as the temps warm the leaking may stop. but as another cold front comes the seals will leak again. this can possibley throw off the balance of fluid in the forks and can be damageing. so again definately reccomend getting the seals changed at the earliest conveinience. thank you.
