Now I have a question I hope someone can answer. The last time I have ridden the bike, I noticed that I was leaking fork oil from under the seal. It wasn't pouring out, but enough to leave a little puddle. It seem to get a little dirt under the seal, which I promply cleaned up with a thin feeler guage. I would like to add a few CC's of Fork Oil back to the shock to make up for the little that was lost. Can I do this without completely disassembling the forks? An How? Do I just bleed any air from the fork with the little screw, remove the cap bolt and add the little oil that I need. Help..
Thanks for any help.

If you're attempting to add oil I suppose you could do it through the bleeder hole, but may not be able to check the level. Put the bike on a stand, front wheel raised!! Remove the top cap of the fork with a spanner wrench then do the oil that way. Check the manual for oil height recommendations. NOTE: I have not been in these particular forks yet, just going on basic knowledge of forks.
Get them serviced asap though.

There is also a suspension shop in Engelwood that my Denver friends say is great but I can't find their info. Sorry.
Let me know if you ever want to go riding.

Dan, I usually ride the Divide trail system off Trout Creek road. I'll shoot you an e-mail once the trails start to dry up.
