Fork Seal Maintenance

Fork Seal Maintenance (Συντήρηση τσιμούχας μπροστινής ανάρτησης)

I've seen a few posts on people blowing out their front fork seals.
I had an RMX 250 which had a problem with leaking fork seals. The guy who had it before me replaced the seals three times before he called the manufacturer complaining.

He bought it new and replaced the seals after a month or two of riding. Suzuki told him to do the following:


I've seen a few posts on people blowing out their front fork seals. I had an RMX 250 which had a problem with leaking fork seals. The guy who had it before me replaced the seals three times before he called the manufacturer complaining. He bought it new and replaced the seals after a month or two of riding. Suzuki told him to do the following:

1) remove the dirt seal

2) clean the forks with a clean rag

3) use a .003 in feeler gauge and run it between the fork and the seal (in other words stick it inside the seal and rotate it around the fork), this is done to remove any dirt or debris which may be causing the seal to leak

4) clean fork again, a very small amount of fluid may come out of the fork when you put the feeler gauge along the seal

5) place a generous amount of vaseline inside the dust seal or on the fork oil seal(I use lithium based grease, which works very well and I recommend it over vaseline)

6) replace the dust seal

7) some grease residue will show up on you're forks after you start ridng, wipe it off and check for leaks.

I've had trouble with my forks leaking after riding in very muddy conditions. This little trick has always fixed the problem. I went 2-3 months without any signs of leaking the last time I cleaned my seals. In that time frame, I raced a couple of harescrambles and a grass track race.

I had to clean them again today but only because I've been riding in mud and water. Guess what: It worked again. It sure beats taking it to the dealer or spending your time replacing seals.

I hope this little trick works for someone else. No one I've talked to seems to know about this until I tell them.
