When they start leaking.


What suggestions are you looking for? There are several tutorials for replacing the seals. just did mine on a GL1200. Not bad at all except for getting the parts. Always have all of your parts in hand before beginning work on the bike.



You might look into replacing the springs with progressives while you have the forks apart.

There is a reason the seal blew in the first place. Do you know why?It can't be that old to just start leaking. If you hit something and made it happen thenperhaps you need a better suspension and should consider progressive springs. This just might be the perfect opportunity. ;)

Just a thought....be sure to check your anti-dive unit on the left fork and make sure it is not stuck. This has caused many left fork seals to blow out on the 01 to 09 style Wing's.

How exactly do you determine if it is stuck or not? I can't find anything in the Honda service manual about the anti-dive unit other than a description of it near the end of the manual. No information shown in either the Front Suspension or the Brakes sections of the manual, so a specific method to test it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
