Re: Fork seal and dust seal question
if you mean the bike has 12,000 miles then i would suggest changing it and the fork seals as well. imo its good to change the oil every 8-10,000 miles or every 2 years, which ever comes first.
i like maxima fork oil and look for NOK fork seals. bikemaster has the NOK seals. bikemaster sells the seals and the dust wipers separately. the NOK are a little more money but have significantly less stiction. you can pick up both at motorcycle super store. they ship fast and have awesome customer service.
youll need to get the suspension reset once youve got fresh oil in there. new oil is a nice upgrade that brings back the suspensions full potential. well worth the effort.
