Fork Seals

Post by Big Stu on Wed 2 Nov - 4:51

Anyone recommend a good place to get my fork seals done.

Got them done back in May when I got the bike cos the left one was pissing oil everywhere, but went out today and its gone again - not too bad yet, but need to get it done sooner rather than later.

You need to stop all these big wheelies Stu! Very Happy
Last time I got fork seals done was in C&D Grants just off Renfrew Rd. Can't remember how much it cost but it wasn't expensive.

It's surprising they would go again so soon,are your forks pitted?

The suspension guy behind Ducati Glasgow is top notch, he is currently working for Scott Redding in Moto2, but he has a running workshop. He's not the cheapest but his service and work are second to none! Think it's called MPG?

Not that I can see. I did have a wee "moment" not long after having them done and its only one side thats gone - wondering if I've either knocked it loose or forced a wee bit of summit up it (fnar fnar). Need to wait till the end of the month anyway cos I'm brassic the now Sad

Who done them for you last time? They really shouldn't have went so soon if you only got them done in May? Unless you've been popping wheelies everywhere! Very Happy

My whopping 14bhp makes wheelies more difficult than you would think lol

Was a garage in along Queen Elizabeth drive in Hillington that done them, cant remember their name

You may want to phone or even go down and speak to them about it, 6 months isn't a long time for a fork seal to last. They might have used cheap rubber seals or done a botched job? Never know, they might sort it for free!

I had the same power problem with my 125, no wheelies just wheel spin! Don't do what I did though and try it when you get a big bike! Whoops! I nearly flipped the thing! haha Very Happy
