I wouldn't mind finishing up that loop and pick up where we left off. I just need to change the fork seals on the KLR, I noticed the right one was leaking.:doh: It might be a couple of weekends before I can get a kitchen pass, wifey wants to have a weekend. As soon as I get a new truck I would like to get up to Branson, MO. my wifes aunt has a hotel up there called the Old Southern Inn. Wife said she wouldn't mind going up to visit her aunt while I explore the dirt roads in that area, I can even get cheap rooms up there if I could get others to go also.

Bryan clean it with film. Most of the time a leaking fork seal can be cured by taking off the dust cover so you can expose the seal. Get a piece of 35 mm film & slid it up under the seal, go part way around & then out slowly. Run your fingers over the film to see if there is any grit. Repeat, repeat , repeat until there is no grit. When you are done spray the seal & fork with WD40.

Hey thanks Chris, that sounds like my kind of fix. Now to try and find some old 35mm. negatives, I know I have some around somewhere. It is not leaking too bad so this might be just the ticket, I wil try it tonight.

Ok, guess we can let no pictures go this time. Maybe next time you can strap a camera to the lower leg and hook up a remote button to take a few. :rider:




Nice new avatar Tony!

Don't know why I didn't do it sooner. My 9 year old is responsible, he is a pretty big Mopar fan himself and just had me order a Scat Pac flag for his room.

Use a feeler gauge. Just be sure to use one of the thin ones ;-)

Chris I forgot to report back, it worked like a champ.:rider: I have gone on a couple of rides and it hasn't leaked since the cleaning, thanks again.
