Once again, there is something to address on my 84 rt. One of the first things I had to do to this bike when I got it was replace fork seals. I took them all the way down, cleaned everything, replaced the seals and refilled by the book.

I've done several sets of 39mm and 41mm forks. No issues. These are different. From the time I put them together, they seemed very tight. There is a lot of drag between the seal and the tube..

This morning, while pulling into a gas station, one of them gave a loud pop and started leaking. I'm going to order another set and do both of them again, since I have progressive springs to go anyway. Is there a trick to these? Are the 35s just tight?
