I have a 2000 WR400 and my right front fork is leaking hydraulic fluid when the bike is loaded on the trailer and compressed. When it sits in the garage, very small nickel sized spot forms, but not much.

Do you think it could simply be a rubber seal or gasket?

That is exactly what it is..fork seal..rubber..where the outer tube meets the inner tube. Should have someone reseal both of your forks and fill to capacity with oil....they don't really hold that much.

Can try cleaning the seals first with some film or seal savers.

You don't crank the forks all the way down in the truck do you? :thumbsup:

Get a fork brace. Best 14 bucks I have spent. Locks the front solid and doesn't compress the shocks.
