    I replaced my O2 sensor this weekend, and while I was in the process of pulling things apart, I noticed this on the right fork tube...

    Quite the dent. Guess that puppy is toast! Does anyone have a spare lower that will fit my 03 1150GS?

    I have no idea!!! You'd think I'd remember something like that, huh? The left fork seal is leaking... guess I'll get a pair of seals, and a new lower. I doubt that will tap out round enough to make a difference.

    Yeah, well... this is what happens when you take it off pavement. It's all part of the fun!

    I looks like it is on the back side, is it hitting something at full lock or as it travels up?

    Yeah... its on the back side. I can't see anything that it could hit, even slamming the stop. One of those mysteries.

    Have a line on a couple of complete right tubes... lets see how that goes.

    At least changing the O2 sensor made a differrence. Today, for the first time all winter, the exhaust was blowing a nice steam cloud. Cat is actually working, so things were lean enough.
