'98 K12RS forks leaking-what's that about?
I have the fairings off my (new to me with 10k miles) '98 K12RS to add some PIAA lights and other safety stuff and have noticed a small oil puddle under the rear of the front fender. It looks like the forks are oozing oil at the top and it is running down to the floor in my garage. I've only ever had Jap bikes and have never gotten into suspension of any kind. Is this common? It is a serious sign of imminent danger or should I wipe it up and pretend it never happened? Does it need to be replaced or fixed? What are my options for fixing it? Thanks in advance for all your insights.
