YES it is an easy fix. There's just a pair of oil seals to replace.. Your question says yes or no.. Definitely yes. Consult your user manual on fork dissassembly.. Let me know if you need a manual.

Some hydrolic fluid leak from the left front shock. What & where is this GLT or GLV switch which causes the leak?


Hi Scott:
If I'm understanding correctly, the fork seal is leaking.
Typically the procedure would be to replace the seal, and at the same time make sure that there is no damage to the fork tube assembly that will cause the replacement seal to fail.
I would recommend that you get your local mechanic to either do this for you, or at least coach you through it if you've not done one before.

How do i oil my front shock on the yamaha 180 scooter?


You don't oil your shock. The oil can be renewed. You have to remove both fork legs from you scooter.
Remove the top cap of each, turn them upside down and pump them dry.
you can find how much oil and which oil grades goes into them. It will be either an air gap measurement or an oil capacity.
if you fork leaked, replace the stanchion seals as we'll.
i wouldn't bother doing it if it doesn't give you trouble. Scooter forks can achieve high mileage without any oil change.
the only time I replace fork oil on any daily ride bike, is when they leaked and the seals are shot.

1996 chevrolet impala ss oil leak rear of engine


Is it engine oil or transmission fluid? Is it driven often or does it sit in the garage? If engine oil, then possibly the rear seal is leaking into the bellhousing as you drive and then draining on the floor after you stop. If ****** fluid, then possibly front seal on ****** is leaking. If car sits for long periods of time the input shaft seal can allow fluid to leak past the shaft. This usually will fix itself when driven. Can't promise it will fix itself permanently. Will not be an easy fix if either seal needs replacing (or cheap).

I have one front shock leaking oil. how do i add oil and how urgent is it to be fixed. 2003 klx 400


Hi, You will have to disassemble your leaking shock and replace the oil seals. Be carefull when taking it a part the springs will snap out, and you have to compress them to get it together. Good luck.

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.

Broken shock and drum/seal leak


Power off the wall mains. Open up the machine panel to look interiors. See if any springs or shocks (known as dampers) have broken or come off. The dampers should not slide in & out freely, if they're defective, replace. Tighten all loose wires, which may have come loose, future probs, so you dont have to open up again.

Next level your machine, front legs way up, means your machine is tilting towards you. Then adjust accordingly so that u cannot shake the machine with both your hands. Lock the nuts, only the fronts legs are adjustable, for most machines. (will get back to u)

Front axel oil leak


High pressure wash the entire area and engine, including the strut or shock area. Depending on how long it takes to leak, look at the axle at night with a flashlight as you can see shinny liquid easy at night, but you will see it in the day also if the leaking is prominant.

You might have a leaky strut or shock that is running down on the axle and I am hoping the mechanic took you for a ride,
