    Has anyone experienced a leaky fork seal; fork seal leaking oil on the 7th Gen yet? ? ?
    I went out to the garage this afternoon to clean up the bike and noticed the puddle next to the tire. Stuck my finger up in the (left side) fork tube - and yep, sure enough, a couple of drops of fork oil on my finger. :bs:

    Funny thing is that I,ve only had it since March of this year. Guess I will get to tryout the standard warranty lol!
    Can't believe I am talking about a Honda motorcycle and mentioning problems in the same sentence.

    You need to be very sure that oil hasn't gotten onto brake pads or rotor !!

    Hope you get that straightened out, alta? I torqued the bolt/nut and that seemed to stop the juice from leaking. Had to take the front wheel off to get to the drain valve. There's a crush washer there.
