Why can’t I stop my Mon­ster from weep­ing?

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Garage -

My 1999 Du­cati Mon­ster 600 is leak­ing fork oil from the fork crown. I have re­placed the O-ring fit­ted to the fork crown nut with a gen­uine Du­cati part (it cost 98p), but the weep­ing con­tin­ues. Martin Gil­body, email

An­swered by John Bur­rows, Du­cati Coven­try With­out ac­tu­ally see­ing the leg it is hard to say what the prob­lem is. These mod­els came with up­side down non­ad­justable Showa forks and the fork oil in these bikes should be re­placed every three years and there are lots of seals which would need to be checked.
