Fork Seals

Fork Seals are doing the weeping crap. Havent ridden it since Saturday when I first noticed it, which is also the first day it started doing it. On to the real question, drag tonight on it or no?? Just need opinions quick lol.

If it's just weeping shouldn't be an issue at all.

Did oil make it to your brake calipers or rotors? If not go for it.

Why not? Shouldnt really affect you on a drag.... its only a straight line. İ think suspension is more important for the twisties but yours is only weeping a lil so dont see a problem with that...

Next week itll have to be, prolly gonna get the forks done did by then too, so the question will become N/A.

Inspect your dust covers, if they are torn or dry rotted, replace them. If not then dont worry about it.

Fork oil is a little tricky. 10wt oil from Maxima is not the same as Kawi 10wt oil. Here's a chart to compare.
