Hey Guys,

I have been told my fork seals need to be cleaned or replaced. Does anyone have any tips on how to do this? What parts will I need to buy? Is this a repair one can easily do himself or should I just take it to the dealership? I am Noob so any help is appreciated!

why, are they leaking? that being said forks as well as the rear shock needs routine maintenance. for now just take them into a shop for a rebuild. If you pull them off the bike and bring them in it shouldn't be more than 100 plus parts.
