I have a 01 katana 600 (It's gotta go ASAP!) and I just found that the right side fork seal is leaky, I probably blew it last year learning wheelies on the 500 pound monster. Now I need to sell the bike ASAP, so I'm probably just going to go and get shortchanged by a dealer, but the thing is I know they check everything REAL good, so I'm wondering if there's anything I can do so that they wont be able to tell te seal's blown.
I compressed and bounced the front end quite a few times, until no more oil came out and I wiped it all off, the seal and the coil around it look fine to me, I looked close and couldn't find any little crackes or anything bad, but how do the dealers check it?

BTW, it's an 01 katana 600, blue, 15k miles, couple small scrapes on each fairing, no cracks, looks real nice, two brand new tires and a brand new battery. Asking 2500 or bo, it needs to go.

I think that is bullshit. I would hate to buy a bike then have to replace the forkseals because you know that the dealer is not going to do it. :headshake . The people here on this web site seem like a lot of honest people so I think that this thread is going to give you a lot of shit. Screwing someone is just wrong!!!

you must have been absolutely slammin it to the ground when learnin to wheelie. As for the seal get it fixed. Pay the cash, if not lose the money when u sell it. Show some moral fibre.

Please only post "for sale" ads in the "for sale forum...

Consider this a first warning.....


And secondly your a tool (not a word i use often) for trying to hide broken seals from an unsuspecting buyer! but karama always comes back to you.. I mean i wanted to sell my old bike but i told the new buyer every little thing i could think of that was wrong with it.. and even gave him all the extra parts i had and manuals in case of anything else.....
