Have a 1999 yamaha r6, right sided a curb to avoid a car, replaced the right fork, but now my left fork is leaking could the impact have dislodged the seal and if so can it be reseated


Hey Ronald... both fork leg seals are leaking..
Let me understand.. you replaced the entire right fork? or just the seal?. The fork legs themselves may be bent .. if the seal is leaking.. it needs to be replaced.. if it is popped loose... then you need to put a new seal in place and probably a new circlip/seal retaining ring and change the fork oil..while you have it apart, I would check the fork leg for warpage(bent)... you need to find a REAL granite SURFACE PLATE..clean it and roll your clean fork on it.. if its bent, it WILL show up..I think if its more than .001" - .0025" warped, then it needs straightening.. a roller press can do it..or replace it..

How do you change front fork seals on a 91 Yamaha Virago 1100?


You need to take them to a Yamaha dealer because you can't do them without seal installers that are very expensive. You will damage the new seals & possibly the forks too. You can save some money by removing the forks yourself. Take off the wheel & fender. Unbolt the caliper& slide them off the rotors BUT DON"T pull the brake handle while off Or you'll push the brakes closed. Now loosen the pinch bolts & slide the forks out of the crowns. Take them to a dealer.

If feels like a pogo stick sometimes and also wants the front end to wash out too and on the front forks i have a oil leak


Your front fork seal are bad and need to be replaced.
When you loose fork oil, your loosing suspension dampening and only riding on the springs.(POGO)

Replace both front fork seals and dust caps, and put same amount of fork fluid in both forks.

I bought my seals and caps for $30 on ebay, and then took my forks off my bike and took them to a shop and they charged me $75 to do the job.

You can take them the whole bike and they will charge $100 - $150 including parts to do the job.

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

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..

How do you adjust the height of the front suspension on a 2007 1100 v star? mine bottoms out when stopping or bumpy roads.


Height is not adjustable on those. Your only option would to replace the springs in the forks with a higher rate spring, and get better valving to slow down the jounce of the bike.

Steering shakes very bad,from 55mph down to 20mph. slowing down


Yes the leak is causing uneven pressure on the front of the bike! The pressure in the left fork is greater then the right fork and will cause shaking of the front end!
Replacing seals and oil to the right fork will fix the shaking!
Hope this helps!
