That fork could be out of oil by now.
Horse Power Farms is another sponsor of www.harvestclassic.org
which benefits the kiddos in our town, a decent group of folks. But honestly if you have any questions about forks, springs, or shocks Roger is the guy. Has been for like 20 years. While the guys at HPF could rebuild your forks, heck I can, Roger will be able to tell you why they leaked in the first place and what needs to be done to correct it.
Some guys will just chime in after I write this and try to convince you that they were old, in fact over 10 years old and just gave up. Guess what? I just happen to have an 01 M600 in my shed of bikes as well and my forks aren't leaking. Soooooooo.........that proves that point moot. Something caused them to fail. While it may have been as simple as dirt on the wipers, wouldn't you appreciate someone being able to tell you that was the case matter of factly, then tell you that your chrome is fine, and your stanchions measured out within tolerance? I mean I could tear down your forks rebuild them with new seals and oil and tell you "there ya go". They might not even leak for a couple thousand miles.
Then if you use Roger for maintenance, he can keep you up to date as a person, not as a customer. HPF works on anything that comes in the door. That's great and works for some. If you just want local to you in the super trendy 04 neighborhoods, you could go to Limey Bikes, Death Trap, Austin Moto Classics, or maybe Marcello or Kingsley could find time to help you out. For suspension work on my Ducati's I'm choosing either MotoAustin as my local Ducati dealer or Roger at On Road Off Road because he is a suspension specialist that just happens to also know his way around Ducati and BMW quite well.
If you ever just want to talk shop about bikes, I know a few people in the area.
