My tunes come out of my Zumo 550 to my Starcomm and then to my helmet headset. I can also run my iphone using the line out of the Zumo to the Starcom.

leaky fork

I noticed my bikes right hand side fork leg is leaking oil. I've lost probably 3 tablespoons of oil so far based on the size of the puddle. If I use this http://www.sealmate.net/ and it stops the leak do you guys think I can use the fork safely or should I have it ripped open and more oil added?

Given the decals in the plate, looks like a Palmer Products windshield / bracket.

Id bet theres just dirt or something in the seal. Ive heard of guys using 35mm photo film to slide between the fork and the seal to clean anything out, Seems to be the same principle with that little tool.

Yup. I've used a business card in the past.

To the OP - I would try to clean the seals but if that fails and there is no obvious damage on the fork leg, I'd be taking it to the dealer to look at under warranty.

Hey man. I am trying to decide which side panniers to buy for my 2012 explorer. Which ones are yours?
