    Ohlins fork cap leak

    Anyone else ever had small amounts of fork oil seeping through the caps?

    Better still, anyone know a remedy

    It may happen if after a service they are put back together without any sealing grease...Or they are not tightened back enough..

    Thanks zlionakis. So assumingly the caps may need tightening down? The fork oil seems to be seeping from between the blue adjusters and the cap as opposed to around the outer rim of the cap where it meets the fork tubes.

    .....

    looks that something is missing then!!!

    p.s. on the outside there is an o-ring that helps the sealing between the cap and main body..

    The following is from the ohlins manual for r&t forks..

    21, 15 and 17 are o-rings...

    most likely your source of problems...
