My damper has started leaking and is pretty much useless, it has less than 1500 miles on it.

Already asked HERE, but i'm in the middle of a problem with this thing:

Mine was working properly, but last week it started leaking.
A friend of mine opened the dam thing and now I need the exact oil to use and a new seal (oil retainer) for that.

Can someone help me with that???

I modified one of my damper brackets to fit around the front frame tube and my another one fits around the fork tube. I had a similar interference issue at full lock. My lines extend too far out rearward for this to work out for me.

I decided to mount mine in a more "conventional" location.



I think it turned out nice!!



Thanks everyone for the inspiration!!

HID Headlamp is next, Frank
Where can I purchase the bracket that your mount on the fork? The ones selling in ebay doesnt include the bracket.

Thanks.
