Dust Seal Inspection
Inspect the dust seals [A] for any signs of deterioration or
Replace it if necessary.
Since a spring becomes shorter as it weakens, check its
free length [A] to determine its condition.
If the spring of either fork leg is shorter than the service
limit, it must be replaced. If the length of a replacement
spring and that of the remaining spring vary greatly, the
remaining spring should also be replaced in order to keep
the fork legs balanced for motorcycle stability.
