I agree with this and not with putting oil under the dust seal, it's dirt that eats the seals, not lack of lube and the oil will attract more dirt.If you keep a chunk of cotton material, like a piece of old t-shirt, wrapped around the tube, under the dust cover, it seems to extend the life of the seals.
I have been experimenting with adding a small amount of ATF on the forks just under the dust covers in hopes of extending the life of the seals and other components at the top portion of the fork assembly. Has anyone tried this and have you noticed any benefit?
You can do it yourself.Yes Dave 0430, those type of fork boots. I believe I remember them on a Honda S90
