Unhappy Öhlins leaking - February 7, 2006, 08:41 PM

I have a 998S FE 2004 with 4500 mi on it and the front left Öhlins sprang a leak. Has any one experienced a similar problem?

Shouldn't be a big deal to get the fork seals replaced. It happens.

Damn it rddy. Why you always take the easy questions. Can't you let a brotha look smart for just one day??? In the words of Napolean Dynomite " GOSH "

Ok no I'm done post whoring now. Seriously it's the fork seal.

Ihave had luck with using a piece of masking tape wrapped around the fork leg and "bouncing" the fork so that the seal goes over the tape. Sometimes debris will make them leak. I've saved myself a few headaches by doing this in the past.

You can also use some 35mm film to the same effect. That is, if you can find any in this digital age!
