Cracked front fork boot on82 aspen.

Postby mz250ts-1 » Wed Dec 18, 2013 9:08 pm



There is a crack- split5/6mm in a lenght at oil draining bolt.
How serious that can be and is it repairable.l didn't test if oil will leak once under pressure.

Thanks

Not good, you could try welding it or JB weld on it but if it's cracked all the way through it will leak and could fail completely and you'd lose the fork while driving not good buy a replacement.
HAD LOTS OF GOLDWING 75-83
NOW INTO 1500'S..RIDING A 1998 SE

FAIR WINDS,
