Well, anyone? I've just replaced my third set of fork seals this year alone. I've tried everything to prevent it but no dice. If this keeps up, I'm going to have to learn how to do it myself just so I can feed my family. My fork tubes are pretty scratched up due to mountain rock riding lately and I'm afraid I'm going to have replace one of them soon and they are getting harder and harder to buff out. Oh well, it is only money. Tell you what, if anyone can invent a way to protect the lower fork tubes on upside down forks, you will be a rich man. ------------------ Dougie, '99 WR400 Mods: YZ timing, Race Tech Suspension, FMF PC IV, FMF Hi FLo Moto, YZ seat, IMS 3.3 tank, One Industries Graphics, Renthal bars, 14/52 gearing.
