    EDIT: Awesome image tagging too by me. So awesome.
    Also note the classy bell helmets sticker and the used squash grip used as a chainstay protector.

    Why? Because good seals means the internals of your fork lasts longer.

    It has seals on it. It has boots and then will likely have seals under it. At least thats what I thought. Unless his seals have blown/broken why replace it. If we in the pnw replaced seals everytime our bikes got muddy we would be broke and bikeless.

    Im not saying replace seals after ever mud encounter. I thought he was saying his seals are crapped out. Besides, the enduros do a better job than any oem seal

    No sir! piece of junk camera which blurs sides of pictures makes that water look like oil! Rest assured is oil.

    I weigh 115lbs and the bike is a size too big for me so almost all my weight is on the rear.

    Ahhh who cares, it's just like all the other MZ-comps I've tried! Probably just crappy forkology. Scratch probably and insert most definitely.

    woo woo
    I'm out! Will read replies tomorrow.

    Bah! You call that muddy? I had to stop twice Friday morning just to clear the mud out of my fork so my tire would roll.
    I like pie!

    The ramped part is supposed to be pointing forwards, not towards the back.

    lawlz that randy guy is so unthug.

    Can anyone aid me with the use of diagrams? Do you mean just the tire or the entire wheel?

    Please clarify for noobie!

    I need detail, otherwise if I try fixing something that ain't broke, my parents will hit me.

    I don't think you should try to fix your travel problem on your own.
