Sorry to hear that bro must have been pot holes
or simply wear and tear

This s great time to rebuild them with the good
stuff such as race tech springs , new seals ,
gold valves and get the right amount of fluid
into them to match your weight and riding style

Check out this link for more info

most of Honda fork seals usually only make it about 10,000 mile, regardless of wheelies. but wheelies coming down hard don't help much either. only use OEM replacements, everything else is junk.

believe it or not, stoppies are alot harder on fork seals than wheelies are.

Damnit, i wish i saw this thread earlier. You could have drivin ur bike up here to Phoenix and i would have done it for ya no charge. Those inverted fork are easier for me even tho most people like workin on the traditional style better. It would have costed you about $36 for a pair of seals, 30-45 mins and a big ass bottle of Sprite for me haha.

My fork seals seem to last me quite a while on my bikes. I finally blew my 954 seals at 17K miles. I make a conscious effort to set my whoolies down soft tho. Just really open that throttle up just before the front tire hits the ground. I kinda open the throttle exponentially when im ready to drop the wheelie and the wheel is comin down.

Hey Hotskate, I just learned how to clutch them up in 2nd before my accident (havent really messed with it since) but anywho try using 1 finger on the clutch instead of 2, seems to find the sweet spot better. Dont really know if youve been doing that but just wanted to pass down some advice since that kinda helped me out.

might just be some residual oil from when the swap was done, you know, between the seal and dust boot. wipe it down with a clean rag, and keep an eye on it. if it starts seeping, take it back.

what weight oil did you go with?
