Fork seals/Electrical problem
« on: September 30, 2002, 15:26:13 PM »
I have a leak from my front left fork

and was hoping that someone might know the size/type of seal I need for

repair?  
My rear brake pedal light keeps sticking on and as a result,

the fuse blows to the indicators/horn (15amp).  Anyone help

me??
Thanks   :'(

Hello graham welcome to the forum.I

would email david silvers spares the link is
on the technical page.They

should be able to get the fork seals, give them  the year
make and

frame number and they will give you the price.
The brake light problem

sounds to me like the switch on one of the levers have you
checked to see

if it is sticking on the front or back as for blowing the fuse this normaly

happens
if you have a short circuit. have you tried adjusting the switch it

got a plastic nut onit
just behind the rear brake lever try a bit of wd40

you never know
 
have fun wayne

hmm... Just last week my brake light

stayed on as well but that was because something was really broken (it's been

welded so I can use my brake pedal again). But your problem doesn't sound

that serious.
Probably one of the switches for the brake licht that is

stuck. You should check if it can be cleaned out. (not sure if there's

something that pushes those switches back but check if that's ok as

well)

BTW I had to have my fork seal replaced a while ago and they

replaced both seals in one go. Until you can replace it put some cotton wool

on top of it to prevent brake oil from leaking on your brake discs
