ZiG 9th Nice bikes gentlemen! Keep the old skool zx10r's alive!

ZiG 9th Try washing your bike and keeping the forks clean to see if that helps. I did that with my gen2 an it went away or stopped.....

I bought a "Fork Dr." fork seal cleaning tool, followed the instructions, cleaned the rotors and replaced the pads. Haven't taken her out again yet, but seems to be dry.

Wondering if just age will cause leaky seals?
