Fork stanchions feeling sympathy for some other part on the bike that is in a painful state of disrepair
My forks began weeping last season, right above the fork gators on my AVL. No real major drips but I've seen a few small trails. I'm hoping this is as simple as a new set of fork seals. I have the Snidal manual but the process still seems a bit mysterious to me. Searching the forums has pulled up anything terribly helpful yet. I'm sure I'll need to check the fluid level in there too.I'm looking for a little advice on this process.Thanks,Boggy
Find out if they have done this procedure..
. Kind of want some unpainted fork legs too but I think that's pu$hings it.Boggy
You don't need to buy unpainted fork legs...just strip the paint!!
Aircraft remover is your friend...
If you've got a 747 parked in an annoying place, anyhow...
The $90 didn't include a new tire? If it did, that might be a good price. If it didn't, that's ridiculous. My local Honda dealers shop wanted $30 to replace my front tire with my new Dunlop if I brought in the wheel.The local Yamaha/Suzuki dealers shop wanted $17 to do the same thing.Guess who doesn't have skinned up knuckles and is $17 poorer but is happily riding around with a new front tire?
P.S. That was 90$ PER tire at the "Enfield dealer" here in sunny Boston.
This is exactly why I wanted to take my tire/wheel to some guys who know about working with spoked wheels.
You'd think people who change tires for a living would know how to handle all kinds, but apparently not.
That's why I'm thinking of stripping the paint while I have them off. Don't want to do that dance twice.
I did the inverse and painted mine. It turned out quite nice. I did flat black on the forks to give a bit of contrast to the freshly painted gloss black rims.Did you strip yours yet?
That does look bad ass. Really nice with the black rims.Haven't done it yet. That, the seals and tires will get done at some point this Winter. Probably going to try some metal fenders and moto-x bars for a more street scrambler look than my current clubman set up too. We'll see. Got to get it done by March 31st, because April 1 I'm riding.
