Before I ship my bike and rode w/you ff's. work has come up, have to get my bike to the shippers by Monday, won't be able to get the fork seal fixed. Will I fuckup the slider if I ride the bike w/no oil in the fork? (Yz fork)

most dealers should be able to fix a fork seal around so cal for about 100 bucks. thats taking them the whole bike. just tell them you just want the one thats leaking fixed. id fix it before a ride just on the grounds when it really lets go you could really damage the internals due to lack of lube and also the chance of oil on the front disk.

i had mine done on my wr and the shop called me before i even drove home saying it was done. long beach yamaha i believe

Just had Long Beach Motorsports (aka Long beach Yamaha, but also KTM) change the seal for my KTM 450 (forks off the bike), it was $85 and took about 4 hours.

First before you do all that.... If it is just slightly leaking....

Get a pair of pantyhose from your closet... Or your wife's closet... Or your girlfriend...

Try first to locate the nick on the fork leg by running a bit of the hose over the fork tube... The hose picks out the tiniest nicks... Then using 1000-1500 then 2500 grit sand paper/Emery cloth go in a up and down then a left and right over the nick... Knocking it down little by little finish with the 2500. Test with hose to ensure its gone. If there's no nicks in the first place use a piece of 35mm film or a really thin piece of plastic to go around seal to see if a grain of sand is trapped and you can ream it out... Easy peasy. I always carry two postage sized pieces of emery cloth in a ziplock along with a piece of film... A lot of times buffing out the nick does it... Or reduces leakage greatly....

I think I will take you up on your generous offer. Just need room for my Kia van & an itty bitty trailer with an itty bitty bike. Just need info on where & what day/time. Will settle up with you when I get there if that is OK?
