If you do one you might as well do the other.

You asked for help, excellent sponsors were recommended, and you chose to take it to cycle shack anyway...why even ask for suggestions if you're just going to ignore them and do your own thing? Play stupid games, win stupid prizes!

Fork seals run $30-$60 and its about an hour job if you know what your doing. That's changing both, not just one... so, hopefully they did both.

If it was just a minor leak, a $5 seal mate probably would have fixed you up and had you back on the road in 5 minutes.

If you need anything in the future please ask for Bill in parts and I will get you a Motohouston discount. I was previously with Wild West in Katy, now here in Conroe. We should be a site sponsor here shortly.
