Tissue paper fork seals
on: 02 October, 2019, 09:36:41 AM
I would post a photo but I'm to dim to make it work :mfrlol:
But yesterday while fettleling around with my CB400A I thought I would paint the fork legs pulling back the seal covers I found the previous owner had stuffed them with a tissue to mop up the oil weeping past the seal .
This I assume got it through a MOT (what you don't know wont hurt you  OR NOT!! )
Its not a big problem  as I would replace them anyway they are probably 35 years old
I reminds me of being a youth and trying everything to keep mobile.
