Front forks leaking again
« on: March 30, 2021, 09:07:43 PM »
Advice please, I have already done the front fork seals twice now they are leaking again. With covid its sat in the garage , not done much miles , yet it leaks. There was some pitting on stanchions, clean it up and fitted seals, only one side leaks.
Do you think I should go for new stanchions instead fitting new seals ? Any idea cost of new stanchions, had a look on WOtriumph but don't see any listed, its for an xrx 16 plate.
Thanks in advance

Item 19 but it would probably be cheaper to have them both hard chrome plated and reground? There are reputable specialist companies out there that do it.
