Default Fork rebuild???

I just got a used K3 1000 and I noticed today that the left fork is leaking. When I get the seals replaced(or do it myself) should I replace the valves as well. Is there anything else I should rebuild while in there. The bike is not going to be used on the track. Thanks.

What's the mileage? Oh, and you might want to consider a set of springs that fits your weight. I think that the Suzuki stock springs are made for riders that are generally smaller and lighter than the typical 'Joe' American. Talk to Traxxion, they are pretty affordable, and you can ship your forks to them. Its actually not a bad deal at all.

Hope this helps.

It's a 2003 with 9K. I way 210, so maybe it would be a wise investment. What about upgrading valves also?
