I have a 04 1300C and had my lower forks chromed. I reassembled the forks and lent the bike to my dad for the day. When he returned there was fork oil all down the left side of the bike. Pulled the dust seal and there was oil laying on top of the seal. I cleaned it all up and inspected the seal to see if I messed it up installing it. It was perfect. No marks, tears of anything. I put the dust seal back in and held the front brake and started rocking the bike so the forks would compress( did it many times). It started leaking again!! Pulled the dust cap again. I also pulled the snap ring. Cleaned everything up again and took a real good look at the seal. Looked perfect. I put the exact required amount of oil in each fork 15.5 ounces. Then I pumped the crap out of the forks to get the air out. The right side is fine. Whats going on? Is there air and its building pressure?
