I keep my WR in my garage up on a lift stand: I have always done this, as I figured it would keep the weight of the bike off the springs & tires. A problem that I have noticed is that my forks seem to leak worse when the bike is kept on the lift stand vs. on it's wheels & sidestand. I know that my fork seals are due to be changed (I've got the new ones, just never installed them), & don't know if this is the major reason for the leakage, or if it is because the weight of the front wheel & fork lowers pulling down miight distort the seals & cause them to leak. I've also noticed that they seem to leak the most when the temperature changes. Anyone have any opinions / experience / input?
