Sounds like your quick bleeders aren't sealing properly. Probably not anything wrong with your forks.

Sounds like the one way valve isn't so one way anymore. Just replace them.

Don't buy quick bleeders from anyone but System Tech Racing in Loveland, Colorado. They INVENTED and PATENTED the quick bleeder, and all others are illegal knock-offs. The corporate thieves know that they can outspend a small shop like System Tech many times over in the courtroom, and can pirate designs with impunity. Support the American small businessman who came up with the thing and absolutely refuse to do business with pirates.

For the record, I have no association with System Tech whatsoever. I just know the story and have System Teck bleeders on my Husaberg.

Intriguing claim.

Had a few fork bleeders leak. Never had the OEM screw leak.
