SOURCE: front fork leaking oil from bottom of the seal.

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?

Change front fork oil seals


you need to remove the front wheel then on the bottom of each fork there will be an allen bolt recessed in. slacken this then undo the large bolts at top of forks. remove the brake caliper from fork leg and tie it up, dont just suspend it by the brake line. undo the pinch bolts on the yokes and withdraw each fork leg. continue to remove the allen bolt you slackened, drain the oil out of the legs and then pull the stanchion out of the fork bottom. the seals can now be prised out from the fork bottoms and new seals pushed in. assembly is a reverse of removal

Replacing the front seal- located on the fork.


To replace the fork seal you must open the top of the fork and remove the spring. Then drop the fork tube out of the clamp. Once the fork tube is removed replacing the seal is simply pulling the old one off and putting the new one on. You will need to remove your front wheel.

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.
