Has anybody had trouble with leaky fork seals? My 01 929 started to leak around the fork seal at about 6000 miles. I don't mess around with wheelies. The roads where I live are less than desirable. I just thought it was kind od odd.

Are your fork tubes pitted from rock chips? Even a barely visible pit will cause a seal to leak.

My friends 636 Kawi blew a fork seal with only a few thousand miles. Found a small nick, from a rock we guess.
