Osmosis, in botany and chemistry, the flow of one constituent of a solution through a membrane while the other constituents are blocked and unable to pass through the membrane. Experimentation is necessary to determine which membranes permit selective flow, or osmosis, because not all membranes act in this way. Many membranes allow all or none of the constituents of a solution to pass through; only a few allow a selective flow.
My bad.

It is also defined as flow from areas of low concentration to areas of high concentration - almost applicable except the main force of movement in the towel case is surface tension right?

Or you could go for the "learning thru osmosis" definition (just reading Chrissy's posts makes me dumber... ) but that is more of a stretch.

back on target, is their some indications that fork oil might need to be changed?

Karma has a lot to do with it.

i was kinda trying to get away from the "motorcycle maintenance thru channeling the universe" stuff (like my Jehovah's Witness crack that ChrisC snagged).

so what your saying is, visually inspect the fork oil every so often and see if it's Karma is gone? kinda like my oil eh? whent the motor is running I can see the particles sloshing around in the oil...

oil seals...

I've searched but not dice. Is there a place here of how to change the oil seals?
My '02 LC4 has evidence of leakage on left side. Seems like these could be cleaned with something but not sure. Thx

You probably just have some grit or something in there. Pull the dust seals off and slide a piece of 35mm film up and around the seal. Be careful and work slowly. Once done, I goob some white lithium grease up in there before I push the dust seals back on.

If you're lucky, your leak will stop. If not, the forks will need to be torn down to replace the seals.

Did we ever determine what fork oil height should be in a USD equiped 640 ADV?

WP manual states:

Keep the outer-tube down and the
piston rod a little bit extended
(like picture), fill the forkleg
with oil till the edge of the
outer-tube, wait a few moments,
you will see airbubbles rising
up.
The oil must stay above the 4
holes of the inner-tube, if
necesarry fill some extra oil in
the forkleg.
12_206
Move the piston rod (keep the
adjustment tube on his place)
several times up and down, till
you feel that the cartridge is
full with oil, (the damping is
smooth over the entire stroke)
mostly it is necesarry to fill
some (not too much) extra oil in
the forkleg.
Now compress the piston rod and
outer-tube fully down, and fill
the forkleg with oil till about
25mm under the 4 holes of the
inner-tube. Move the piston rod
and the outer-tube at the same
time several times up and down
over the entire stroke.
Push the piston rod and outertube
fully down and adjust the
oil level (airchamber) with
T137S


Airchamber is 120mm for the 2003 Adventure.

This is a small point and maybe obvious but, ... back to step one

1. loosen top triple clamp bolts
2. loosen caps
3. loosen bottom triple clamp bolts.

The top triple clamp puts pressure on the caps, they come off easier if you loosen the top triple first.

Back to your regularly scheduled program .....
