Dropped bike and oil from fork - what to do?


Recommended Posts


I had a little incident where my bike was dropped at low speeds (< 15mph) and after a day I noticed the front right fork had oil leaking down onto the brake discs and tyre. I assume a fork component is damaged but which component is the likely culprit and how could I go about investigating the exact damaged component?


P.S. They are USD forks.

Assuming you haven't got a hole or fracture in the bottom part of the fork, you should take a look at the stanchions and see if you've got any dents or scratches. Also take a look at the dust covers and seals.
