  • Front Fork Leaking

    Hi Guys,

    My Bike Flame 13months Old is having a Heavy Leakage in Front Forks (Left Fork)
    I noticed this a Month ago - but today only i had thought of to Resolve this issue
    As the Fork started tro produce sound whenever i pu the Disc
    The oil is leaking in the front and also from the bottom
    Advice me what could be the possible problem of this

    Do i need to get it checked in AUthorized TVS Service or any any Local Mechanic?
    Coz in TVS they cost a Bomb for checking though the warranty is ON - does this comes in warranty?
    If i give it to any local mechanic will it be OK?
    And tell me if i can myself resolve the issue or not?

        Oil seals might have gone kaput. make sure the oil does'nt fall on the disc.

        You can get it done from a local mech too. I dont think this will be covered under warrenty!

            I give my bike to a TVS ASC here, and it does not cost a bomb. So I dunno why you say that...

            Anyway, try to argue to get them to do it in warranty. It is likely to work. Going to a local mechanic unless you know what kind of work he does is more risky.

              Fork Oil Leak

              Consult your service station and get the job done at earliest.
              Not due to risks involved but if your front fork oil seal is gone then it might damage the shocks increasing the cost involved in repairing it later.
              Also, I will suggest to go to your service station due to following reasons:
              1. Adjusting both the shocks with new oil and oil seal will definitely be not perfectly same. So Service station guys can implement their own PREFERRED methods to the work.
              2. Removal and fitting will take out major assembly of handle controls. The service station guys are experienced in it.
              3. You will receive the final assembly & settings as it was in early days.
              My earlier Yamaha Libero, took just 2 hours for filling and oil seal replacement. But after repairing, I definitely enjoyed riding. Hope this helps..

                I had the same problem. I got the oil replaced and changed the oil seals at the service center.
