I have just joined and am busily getting my bike ready for my first rideout with the Essex TRF Sunday week. I am in the process of the rebuilding the front end however have a tech issue I was hoping someone could advise on. My Cr is a 97 model with the USD forks however I have stripped them and had the outer tubes re anodised, on rebuild I have noticed about 0.5 to 1 mm of play on both forks at full extension, on an off bike static test no oil leaking however once on the bike and under normal use the oil leaks out drastically rendering a dangerous situation.
I have ordered another set of new bushes however with the same results, there are no grooves or damage to the forks and i get a steady 46mm diameter from the top to bottom of the fork legs.
any ideas gents??
