Question about 2002 Yamaha YZ 426 F
Try this before you decide to replace the seals.Get some camera film negative.Cut the notches off the side with scissors and cut one end of it about 45%.This should leave you with a piece about 4 inches long.Now slide the pointed end up and into the fork seal.With a sawing motion,slowly work your way around the seal.You may 'feel' some tiny bits of grit.Pull it out ,wipe clean and do it again.It may take 3-4 times to get the seal clean.Do this slowly and you will get to feel where the grit is.The grit makes it leak.Unless you have a puddle of oil on the ground,don't worry about the oil level.This will work more often then not and save you heaps of bucks.We always take some if we go for a weekend ride.Hope this helps
