06 YZF450 fork seals leaking

6 posts in this topic

Well after being fed up with valve issues on my 04 and 05 CRf 450's I just bought a 06 YZF450 with about 15 hours on it. The bike is really clean and has been rejetted with a full Dr. D exhaust. It starts on the first kick and I don't even have to crack the throttle like I did on the CRF.

My left fork seal is flowing like a river. I have heard some people complain about the fork seals on the YZF's. Any suggestions, aftermarket seals etc.

Any suggestions on seals or anything else on the YZF would be appreciated. I'm the oddball ball of the group now since all of my buddies still ride CRF's.

Thanks!

Todd
