Dust Seal Inspection

Inspect the dust seal [A] for any signs of deterioration or
damage.
Replace them if necessary.

Spring Tension Inspection

Since the 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 re-
maining spring vary greatly, the remaining spring should
also be replaced in order to keep the fork legs balanced
for motorcycle stability.
Spring Free Length
Standard:
Service Limit:
302.9 mm (11.9 in.)
297 mm (11.7 in.)
