Yes. No removal/disassembly of anything required. They seal very good on the velcro, not letting any debris in through there. The FTR's protector does its job for items striking the tubes head on, but not for debris from any other direction trying to strike or stick to the tubes causing premature seal failure.These the velcro type?
I was thinking the same thing mate.I'm wondering if this was in part the way the bikes were secured in their crates. The front was tied down from the triple clamp as you would if you were transporting on a trailer or ute. I don't recall anything chocking or working against that tension. I know from experience that forks can weep after being compressed for too long. Mine had residual oil on the stanchion for the first couple of weeks but it's fine now.
That's good to know, cheers dude.Factory manual says slight leakage is normal.
Nice one Fella ?Agreed. These are inverted forks, and a lot of weight is on the front end. I will post a screenshot from the manual tomorrow.
