You can change just the seals, forget about any warranty though.

How do I change the wiper on the shocks of a 2003 750 Honda Magna motorcycle?

Hi, Sherman the wiper is just a dust shield for the seal if you have oil on your forks and they are not scratched you will have to replace the seals (both forks) if your fork tubes are scratched and can not be polished out then you need to replace the tubes otherwise your forks will leak no matter how many new seals you replace (tip use double lip seals) for this scenario you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Yamaha, despair not, for a mere $0 you can download another one.

Honda GL 400 1981 model - how much fork oil needed and what is the air space required?

Hi Guys,
I know this issues were posted a long time ago, but I am looking for advise here.

I had the gear not switching problem, with my just under three year old Burgman 650 Executive last year. It left me stranded in the motorway near Manchester, UK after paying the local mechanic 200 pounds for a diagnose I decided to transport the burgman back to London another 300 plus 500 repair cost from my dealer. Suzuki paid for the part ( A new gear box), the problem occurred again after a month but went away while at the dealer. Now I am stranded again but now in Amsterdam, The Netherlands and I am really worry that my only solution is to abandon my Burgman. The dealer told me back in the UK that because it was over three years old they didn't expect Suzuki to do anything about it..... Any ideas of what I should do. The local dealer in Amsterdam told me that if they start taking the motorbike apart the cost could go over 2,500 Euros.... Maybe taking my dealer to court is my only option.... How can I prove my case so... Or is it worth trying to do the work myself... I really feel cheated by Suzuki at the moment.....

I am checking about a Service Advisory about problems with the gas tank on my 2001 Aztec. Any ideas?

Only a dealer would have that bulletin
& no way they will honor or extend warrantee,
if you never got a recall or failed to respond

If you do not do all you own work ,I would suggest
you get a copy of the service update or whatever
& then have a local repair shop smoke test &
diagnose the entire Evap System

You many not need to do a thing

You can buy a fuel tank cheaper in the aftermarket
& have the local guy install if necessary or have
a relative do in your driveway

Front shock oil running all over

Unless you've had your front fork assembly serviced recently, I'd guess you've got blown oil seals in the top of the sliders on your forks. If someone serviced your forks lately, they may have put in too much oil and blown the seals. You'll have to drain the forks, disassemble the fork tube from the lower slider and replace the seal in each leaking tube. Refill the fork tube with the designated about of oil for a "dry" refill. Use this figure because the fork tube was disassembled. When you simply drain the forks without a disassembly, you cannot get all the oil out and the refill quantity is less.

Good Luck

Honda deauville fork oil leaking out left side only done 3000 miles

Seals do have a habit of blowing ,but first you must check the stansions (chrome part of the fork) for rust ,best to replace with new,or get re-chromed British chrome is the most hard wearing,allso put a straight edge against the stansion in four locations to check for straightness 90^ appart.if any gap between straight edge and fork then replace or get engineer to straighten .

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 forks suspenion

It could be old oil or it could be spring tension. The easiest way to check which one is change the fork oil. If it still does not perform to your satisfaction, replace the springs. I would not expect the springs to wear out before 40,000 miles under normal usage for this bike. You should be changing the fork oil at least every two years, yearly would be better.
