This is one of the few things that I recommend you take to a shop - you need some very special tools and techniques to fix this problem. Sorry,

SOURCE: 99 CBR 900 Front fork seals

If the seal has been cracked by the cold weather it should be replaced. For someone mechanicly inclined and with the proper tools this is not a hard job. For the novice it can be one of those times you could have sent it to the shop and spent less time and money, and gotten better results....
As to a seal conditioner, the seals today are generally made of synthetic material. No "conditioner" will work. If the seal is made of rubber you have a 90% chance that a product called 'MARVEL MYSTERY OIL' will solve the problem. This prouduct was created in 1917 and marketed in 1923. Google the product name for more hystory and uses today. Basicly, the oil causes rubber to swell. This tightens seals and thus fixes the problem. Most any good auto parts store has this stuff on the shelf. By the way, if the bike was purchased new, wouldn't this be a warranty repair?

SOURCE: Fork seal replacement

Did you try taking down the fork seal and cleaning out with wd/40 and a piece of 30mm film? You should always try this first. The seals rarely go bad. There's probably just a vary small rock holdeing it open and the film will dislodge it the wd is just to help things along.

The seal under the dirt seal on the fork was leaking when I picked the bike up from the owner. left the fork oil under the dirt seal kept bouncing the forks up and down for 4 days the seal got soft from the fork oil so I pulled the dirt seal up then cleaned the fork oil under it with a rag then checked it for leaks then pushed dirt seal back down in the groove and its not leaking now 200 miles and still dry.

Stock fork seals will work but if I were you, I woudl take it to someone who has the correct tools take your fork seals out without gouging the fork leg. If your seals are leaking then chances are you're also low in fluid. Your fluid level is what decides how hard or soft your front end is (In addition to fork spring rate).

it s something you can do yourself if you're mechanically inclined and pay attention to detail. there are some special tools you need, such as a fork spring compressor, fork seal driver, and snap ring pliers if you don't have any. the internal parts in the fork must go in the same way they came out, and all parts should be cleaned prior to reassembly. you should also consider replacing the bushings along with the fork seals and dust covers. might really want to consider letting a professional do it so that way the forks still don't leak after you put in the new parts.

98 yzf 600R..Right fork leaking. Problem and fix?


it sounds like your fork seal has failed,it wont affect your brakes but will make your front suspension feel a wee bit "soggy"and will affect your handling,i would suggest getting the seal replaced as evetually the oil from the faulty seal will contaminate your brake pads that will affect your braking performance,replacing the seal,sooner rather than later ,would be a wise move..hope this helps...cheers

Gsxf 600 fork seals are leaking


Get a manual as you will be in over your head if you haven't done one before, and it will have all the steps in there to do it. There are a bunch of parts in the lower leg of the fork. If you want a better set up then you have, I would look at replacing them with some 89-97 model forks as they are adjustable, and our 88 models are not.

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..
