The tubes were oiled and I put a light coating of grease on the seals. Yes the later R65 came with a early version of the K bike fork. I'm starting to think my dad had a devil of a time with the oil leaking. He, or somebody, tightened the bejezus out of the top fill screws. And the greasy gunk all over everything when I got the bike was probably fork oil that kept getting replaced. It has only 22K miles, so I'm thinking wear on the metal parts is not a big issue.
