Boooooo....

Well, I noticed today that my left fork is showing oil at the top. Is this a leak? If so, I hope it's covered by my extended warranty... Boooooo...

Don't clean it till after visiting dealer! I cleaned mine and was told come back when they can see it leaking! I cut a milk carton and was able to get the crude out and no more leak.

Willing to bet it isn't. Why? It's a maintenance item.

I had my stanchion issue performed. After the work was done I noticed a leak. Wouldn't cover it although I mentioned it didn't occur until after the recall and the tech bulletin said to replace the seals for the service.

Thankfully it isn't difficult to replace.
