So I trailered my bike for about a 1 hr drive. I use they typical ratchet tie downs and compress the front forks.
When I got home I had a good dose of oil all over the sliders (they are of the upside-down style)......maybe 1/2 oz or so on each one.
In an upside-down fork with the fork compressed, I probably have alot of oil ABOVE the piston and the seal when the forks are compressed
so it COULD have leaked out?
My friend had his bike beside mine and no leak. He uses a wood block to keep the forks from popping downward (and poss coming loose)
With the wood block in place the forks have no motion UP or DOWN
With mine there could have been a small pumping action that made them leak?
I replaced the seals less than 1 season ago and I'm 99% sure I made a good clean job of it
Bottom Line: Do I have junk seals or is there something odd in trailering that could have done this?
