My suspension Fork is leaking oil!!!
Hi: I have a Specialized RockHopper MTB. One side of the fork is leaking oil. Is it easy to fix myself?? What kind of oil need to replace or refill?? What's happen if I don't take care of it. Need advices. Thank You

first what model fork. you must use shock/fork oil, get it from a motorcycle or dirt bike shop. lack of damping or hyrdro locking may occur if no maintenance is done.

First you need to determine why it's leaking. Can you post a pic or tell us where it's leaking?

Blown fork seal or scored/bent stanchion.
