first off i dont do wheelies as often as you make it sound, and the only time i redline'd them is when i dont use the clutch and the other day right after i switched the shift pattern.

i usually do if i even ride them long enough to.

and back to wheelie's, while they may have played a factor, i dont think thats the reason because i didnt do any the day the seal leaked...but it doesnt matter anymore cause its fixed and im back on the road in a matter of a few hours thanks to powersports

glad to hear that you got it worked out. You being "back on the road in a matter of a few hours" sounds like they did the hiyena-jump(sp?) on it. Have you ever heard of 'Seal Mate'? I wonder if that would have helped..

those normally sell for like $5 and I've been tempted to try it out, so I thought i'd ask if you had tried it. I think they are more popular with dirtbikes, but I can't see why it wouldn't work on an R6.


Description

* Easy way to keep your fork seals clean and debris free.
* Extract dirt or debris trapped between fork seal & tube.
* Will work on conventional and up-side down forks.

Looks like it is just designed to clean the seal, not go on and guard anything?
