Forks are easy

Silicone is easy lazy mans safety wire, they do it on all Penguin Race school bikes, easier than drilling bolts
\The 99 forks were some of the best front suspenders ever on those bikes. Look behind the sprocket to be sure there isn't silicone there masking a leak. I had a 2000 (same gearbox) check to see that the countershaft bearing is solid. Mine wore out, after many miles of use, and you could move it with your finger about 1/16-1/8 inch and the trans was very noisy when that happened.
