DocSabre is on a cross-country trek to North Carolina.

He's near Lansing, Michigan with a leaking fork seal.

He asked me to forward a message to the Michigan area Troopers:

If anyone knows of a bike shop in the area that might have the parts and could do the work on a Saturday (July 10th) he he would be most appreciative.

He plans on heading toward West Virginia on his way to Western North Carolina and will also be traveling through Toledo, Ohio.

He currently doesn't have internet access and asked me to look into this for him. I'll be checking the site more compulsively than usual.


Thanks,

Norm

First, try running a piece of 35mm film or the thinnest leaf in a feeler gauge around the seal to tube junction at an angle that would push any foreign material up and out.

Thanks, I forgot about that one.


Checked with Full Throttle, they can do it, but no seals in stock.

BTW, he said the bike is handling strange.

Holiday Power Sports

Holiday Power Sports in Michigan Center just south of Jackson on 127 is another option. Having the seals in stock will be a tough one...
