Bug parts are just like getting sand and grit under your seals, and you for sure do not have to go off road to still get something under the seal......it does not take much. Seals rarely go bad, more times than not something is under one. Agree to really look your tubes over and make sure not pitted or nicked, and I clean my tubes with a microfiber cloth and a bit of WD40. Try the sealmate first, may save you quite a bit of time, money and hassle. :fineprint:I could understand that if I did a lot of offroad, but I only ride street.
202,000+ km, over 125,000 miles on my 2006 DL650 and no fork seal leak.This seems to be a weakness on the wee. I have 34000km on mine and had the right front seal replaced twice. Apparently stanchion is pitted. Never been of road. Poor quality.
