Had a small leak on front fork which turned into a bigger leak! Closer look at seals and they were dry cracked. Took forks and rear shock to 812 Suspension in Round Rock TX for service. Also taking this opportunity to do other maintenance on the bike. If I could give a little advice it would be check swing arm bolt, swing arm needle bearings and steering stem for grease! Steering stem was greased but not enough in my opinion. The swing arm bolt had no grease and was locked in place by corrosion. Swing arm needle bearings had very little grease but luckily still in good condition!! Needless to say these items were greased among other items for future maintenance.

A lot of manufacturers seem to be tight with the lubrication of bearings. I miss the days past when grease nipples were provided to enable us to pump some grease into the swing arm bearings easily and on a regular basis.
