Why can’t I stop my Monster from weeping?
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.
