Forking Seals

Posted on July 27, 2018 in Live to Ride, Ride to Live

The quick fix on the left fork seal did not work. Not long after leaving the shop you could see fork oil slowly accumulating on top of the seal and on the fork itself. I called Endras back and they booked my in for Friday the 27th. Hopefully last minute maintenance before a big Summer motorcycle trip doesn’t become a habit.

Minor panic when I got the bike in. The tech who was scheduled to do the work was off sick. Now, Endras got me fixed up. They understood the urgency and got one of their other service techs to squeeze it into their schedule even though they were all fully booked up. That said, a call to let me know my tech was off sick would have been appreciated, especially given it’s a ~2hr ride for me to get to Ajax from my place.

Still, all’s well that ends well. The work was covered under warranty and I was all set for my Newfoundland trip. I also picked up the BMW Small Tankrucksack while I was there so I would have some at-hand storage while on the road.
