Front fork HEEEELLLP.......
 
I have extremely leaky fork seals and do not have the cash to have them done for me so I have to do them myself. I took them off the bike already but am a bit nervous about opening them up as I have never done it before :new_shocked:. If anyone can give me a hand or just talk me through it I would much appreciate it. I ride a 05 CBR 600RR.

This is a tricky operation if you don't know hat you are doing. You need hands on help with this. Written instructions won't be enough.

I don't know what I am doing but I will be doing this myself hopefully correctly.

Moved to the Mechanical and Technical forum.

I did this with help from another SCS member who no longer frequents this board. As vegasvideo mentioned, it can be a tricky process.

Anyone else wanna help out Charlie? I can only offer moral support. :icon_biggrin:

Charlie, does your bike have the inverted forks? If conventional, I did the seals on mine and can help. But if inverted, I have no idea.

But like Eric said, there are peeps (I might still have Don Fila's #) that are "Fork Whizes" around, but not on the board.

The '05 600RR has inverted forks.

Maybe a CBR-specific forum?

I can help, PM me for details, i've changed many different fork seals, and yes if you don't know what you're doing you'll probably get extremely frustrated and might F*ck something up.

Before you replace the fork seal go get a roll of film, or some old 35mm lying around and run that up inside the fork between the seal & the fork tube itself. There's a small possibility that dirt is trapped between there causing the leak. Now depending on how much oil you've already lost, this might not be an option. Hope this helps

Yes it does have inverted forks.
