having some leaking from my front fork tubes. one seal at the lower forks and then some from both of the seams of the 3 inch extenders. whats the deal?

could it be that i have cranked a few large potholes this year and the force is pressing some oil out. its not a ton of oil but its not a drop either.

thoughts?

I know there was a issue with the orings that came with the 3" extenders, did you get yours before during or after the group buy?

Hey Captain,

I had the same problem…I had read from RSS that he did not transfer his o-rings from the old set-up to the new one.
When mine started to leak on only one side, I went to my part bin and noticed the o-rings were still on the old assembly…I had Honda install it.
I thought they must have forgotten them so I took them apart only to find they had some installed already. Maybe came with the kit or they had them at the shop…not sure.

I took off the o-ring off the bad side and replaced it with the OEM one from my part bin. The only thing I noticed with the one I took off was it was deformed. (not round but oval)
After changing the o-ring it has stopped.

I would say you need to replace the o-ring or maybe it was overlooked and not put on during assembly.

Just an FYI mine was bought before the group buy as well.

Hope this helps.

Or some Teflon tape will work, something that works with the fluid we got in there, not plumbers tape though...

If the O rings are oval its sounds like they were bound up inside and warped. Mine was leaking from the top a couple weeks ago. I losened the bottom trees allen bolts and grabbed my strap wrench. Twisting in the right direction i managed to get just over a half turn to tighten it back up. I didnt losen the top bolts as they were holding the extention in place.

The bottom leak ... did you ( or who ever did the work ) replace the seals at the bottom bolt? I paid the extra 50 cents each just in case, and i havent had one leak yet ... yet. LOL
