I think he's what's 'stoned' . LOLdansdad said:
No a stone from the road has made a tiny nick in the surfase of the fork tube. as that nick which has a up component passes through the seal it has cut a groove . this is where your "leak" comes from.dansdad said:
Yeah Yeah, But did you stone it off. That's all it takes to damage the seal.dansdad said:well, i took a closer look at the fork and was able to find a very small nick...also found that the black rubber/plastic ring that wraps around the outer tube end has cracks in several places...does that mean anything?
Yes stone them all check the other fork too. The only fix is new seals. But if you don't get the forks smooth the new seals will leak too.dansdad said:after looing at it again in the daylight i found severeal rough spots...is it ok to just stone all that i find?.
and then what do i do afterwards if the leak still leaks?
thanks by the way FOG and Lucky
