Take em off and do it right ... chances are high that your other tube seal is about to go as well, so do both of them at the same time. Even if you can't do it on your own (There may be a special tool involved that you don't have) you can still take the separated tubes to the shop, and you'll be charged alot less since you did the removal work yourself!

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,

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?

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.

My front fork o-ring seal is leaking, how do I


There is a seal in the "slider" of the front fork, the part that moves up and down. I haven't had a chance to work on the later forks but the earlier 41mm forks are quite simple.

Start by taking the drain plug out of the bottom of the slider and work the slider up and down to blow out all the oil. Then, remove the front wheel. Remove the top cap from the upper tube and loosen the top plug. Now, with the top plug loose, loosen the pinch bolts and slide the fork out of the triple trees. Remove the top plug carefully, There is a BIG spring in there. Once you have the plug out lift the spring out and set it asside. Notice the tapered end of the spring. It goes back in first. Turn fork tube upside down and allow as much oil to drain out as possible.

Now, look at the bottom of the slider where the axle goes. Up in a hole there is an allen head bolt. it is designed to use a special wrench but a regular 8mm allen key in GOOD shape will take the bolt out. It's best to use an air wrench to do this with. With the bolt out, the slider should slide right off.

Down inside the top part of the slider is where the seal is. Theres a snap ring, a spacer, and a seal. Replace the seal and put a little oil on it to assist reassembly. Put everything thing back together and add the appropiate about of oil. Since your forks are much larger than mine, I have no specs as to the quantity. The owners manual should tell you or a call to a local Harley dealer. Sorry but thats a good as I can do. There is a "wet" measurement and a "dry" measurement. Since you disassembled your fork, use the "dry" quantity of oil

remove the fork from the bike,remove the dust cover over the oil seal,this will expose the fork seal that is leaking,remove the seal(probably have to stab throgh it with a screwdriver to get it out)measure the seal outside diameter and the diameter of the fork leg,take the seal and your measurements to any motorcycle shop and they should be able to match up a new seal...replace the seals in both fork tubes,as if one is leaking the other one will fail soon

Right front fork weeps oil. Will I die?


How long has it been since you've changed your fork oil?
How long has it been since you've changed your fork seals?

If you haven't changed your seals in over 5 years, get your seals changed. Major surgery? Nah... Fork seals is a common procedure, A real good repair shop should be able to do in within the 1 to 2 hour range, depending on the condition of your bike.
Will you die? Only God knows when you're time is up.
