Well...apparently me and a buddy messed up. After rebuilding my showa forks on my 97 Cr-250 they are still leaking. The only step we took where there was any question was the actual way the fork seals went in the forks.....bevel poiting up or bevel pointing down. The link everyone showed on here said put the side of the fork seal that has writing on it towards the dust seal....well mine didnt have any writing on them. we put them on with the bevel pointing "up" (when mounted on the bike) and now they leak. So I assume they are in backwards?...anyone have any input on this?.....also the owners manual shows 6 oz of oil going into the top portion of the shock and the total capacity is in between 11 and 14 oz. does this include what goes in the top portion of the shock?...or is this completely seperate?....someone PLEASE give me some input....
