Fork Oil and Suspension Questions....

was doing some things on the LC4 the past few days and decided to check the oil level in my forks. i already had the fork out due to a steering bearing inspection so it only took a sec to check. i know my seals had been leaking over the past few weeks. they had a rough trip of 2000+ miles tied down on the trailer with the forks compressed so i wanted to make sure that my level wasnt low due to loss.

to say the least i was shocked when i saw the results. not so much the oil level but the condition of the oil.



this is a side by side comparision of the old oil and some new oil. i had no idea that fork oil could get so nasty! this oil has roughly 1 years worth of riding on it since it was last changed. granted a lot of it was wet and nasty, but i still dont think the oil should be that bad.

is this a sign of a problem with my seals? or something else?

either way, id recommend you check your oil soon.....

thanks,

laramie
