Minytrker, how could you tell when your seals went bad? I'm looking for a way to clean the inverted forks on a 636 without messing up the coating on them. I assume something like WD40 would probably be bad.

That is one hell of a deconstruct job going on there.

You will start seeing oil residue on the forks. The longer you keep riding the faster the oil will leak out. The fork seals were bad on my stuntbike when I got it. On my other bikes I just wipe the forks down with a clean rag.

I asked the local race shop about that and they said leave it all stock, just maybe put a few more ml of oil in. Fork seals should last a long time, I dont really know people going through them a lot doing stunts, just over time.

FINISHED!! It was real easy to change then fork seals, never done it before and it took 2 hours or so to do. It took longer to take the front wheel and fairing then it took to take the fork off and take it apart. Seal driver $60 seals and oil $30 so I spent $90 and I now I have the toll for next time.
