Check Enduro Fork Sealstia4 said:I could hear air escape and see tiny bubbles from the seals when trying to pump it up.. It is also a sudden loss of air. I put air in the fork the next day (bike in basement overnight), and I can hear air leaking when compressing fork. So this is not just a cold weather issue. The stanchions felt oily also. I bought the fork nov.04, so out of warrenty . Unfortunatly this happened last winter only twice so I didn't do anythig about it. I never worked on a fork before. Thinking of replacing the seals myself.
Well, it is normal for the rubber seals to get stiff in cold temp. Thus they don't fit perfectly to stanchions. Now, if they are worn out that means you'll have no choice but to junk them and put a new set on. But before you doo that, you should check your oil level, coz it can happen that the oil is too low and doesn't cover the seals all together causing the air to hiss out more easily...Warp2003 said:Check Enduro Fork Seals
Enduro has not only seals but has nice pictorial instructions on how to swap them.
It could be your stanchions reducing in diameter for the cold. Rubber it's not so affected, so that could be. The problem you didn't see it much last year as your seals were still tight and with some wear this year it could be worst.
