I drained the fork oil and cleaned it out as best...

    Bad caliper seals?

    6 pot calipers, I've got funny brake caliper feel and was wondering what the symptoms are for the seals going bad. I rolled downhill and applied partial brakes and it feels like the pistons are grabbing all of a sudden (not gradual braking as normally happens) at one point during wheel rotation...

    Blown air seals on forks

    Hi All I've just taken delivery of progressive springs for my 88 and I'm fairly sure the air seals are blown. I've noticed a lot of you run with no air anyway, BUT is the air damping integral to the rest of the forks operation? In other words if I don't fix the seals will it matter? Thanks in...

    Few observations on changing fork seals

    The bike is a 93. I had a pretty good ring of oil on my fork, so I figured I'd better get the seals changed before the weather changed. I called the local cycle shop and they quoted me around $150. I didn't think that was to bad, but With Seans video and all the knowledge here, I figured I'd...

    Question regarding new caliper seals

    Hi all: I know this is an idiotic question, but sadly, that's the way I roll... I've received some rubber caliper seals for rebuilding my R1 Blue Spot brake calipers, and each set of seals comes with a little clear packet of a purplish/pinkish goo. Is that a grease, or a type of adhesive...

    Fork Seals

    Does anyone else have fork seal problems? It seems like I have to replace them every 2 or 3 years. I've had to do this since I bought it when it only had 11,000 miles on it. Is there a more permanent fix?
