I noticed...when fixing my drain plug leak :bang: ... that the bottom part of my right fork is leaking a bit from that hex bolt. Would it jsut need tightening or is this something more severe. I just noticed it tonight and it seems to be the first time. Ive ridden it once so far so maybe just tightening? :nod:

Thanks

Mine did the same thing awhile back. I just loosened it about a 1/4 of a turn and tightened it back up, it hasnt leaked since. No idea why but it hasnt leaked since so I have left it alone.

Are you sure it is coming form there? Any chance it may have leaked from the oil seal area and leaked down into that area? If the hex bolt is actually lose, then you may want to take the forks apart and inspect them. That would be very off for the bolt to come loose.
