    Persistant leaking fork seal

    I have had my S1000rr coming up one year now.
    in that time I have had my left fork seal replaced 3 times by the garage in Manchester and its gone again,
    I can not complain about there service however my confidence in them is nil
    Any ideas or suggestions would be much appreciated.....

    Its normal to get a film on the fork, a drip would be too much.

    How about going to SSR in Shropshire?

    I had an issue with mine and ended up being the station had a slight stone chip, Replaced it wasn't even that expensive also had better quality fork seals fitted by HM Racing.

    Has been perfect since.
