    Ohlins Fork Leakage

    The top of my fork tube is weeping oil, does the tool kit come with a suitable C spanner to tighten, if not where is a good place to get one.
    It has only covered 1500 miles to date, is this a common problem


    cheers

    Scrap it, it's an absolute plum. Whilst you are breaking it can I have the wheels and carbon? Say 100 including postage?

    Any motorcycle dealer should have the Ohlins tools to tighten it up.

    I have just had my fork seals doen by an Aprilia dealer.

    65 in vat.

    Where was this? My dealer wants 110, not that I'm tight or anything but that's nearly twice the price.
    ps did you have to take the fork legs out for them?

    Cheers.
