The superior '05 1st gens heal themselves.
It's all in the ridiculously extravagant paint color.
Yeah that's right...
Well, it didn't stay healed very long so I used that little $6 piece of mylar 'Seal Mate' thing and amazingly...after a 20 mile spirited ride,the forks are dry ...it worked.
It would be a PIA to do on the floor but luckily I have a lift....just took off the left side outer & inner lowers and was able to do both forks without much trouble at all.
I'm right handed so maybe southpaws would find it easier to remove the right side plastic...I dunno??
