maybe someone on here with more experience can give me some pointers. I am highly frustrated with the constantly leaking forks on my 2004 wr450f! I put a little over 1000 miles on it this year (first dirtbike) in the single track and in that time I have put three sets of seals in there.
The issue that has me over the top this time, is I did the right (non brake fork) just before an enduro and by the end of the enduro it was already leaking!
I am using brand new OEM fork seals each time, however, i do not replace the bushings or the dust seals. About every 2-3 rides, i pull down the dust seals and clean out the grease/dirt/grit and pack new grease in the dust seal and go about my business....it just seems like my forks are always a battle to keep from oozing fork oil, anyone else have this issue or have some tricks to keep this down somewhat? it doesn't seem like my other riding buddies are struggling with this issue like i am (non-yamaha bikes)
