I just put a 70 series rear tire on my 2001 Wing. This led me to want to balance the geometry of the bike front to rear. With my relatively new front and rear springs and valving, I had the fork tubes raised in the triple tree 10mm. This set up worked especially well in the canyons. With the new taller rear tire, I subsequently lowered the fork tubes to flush with the cap to compensate for the taller tire. I here many guys complaining about blown fork seals. When I rebuilt my forks I made sure to polish the chrome tube with 1,000 grit sandpaper because there was much pitting from rust because of living near the beach ( bike came from Santa Barbara ). This may seem obvious but the tubes must be very very smooth in order to maintain the oil seals in the forks. Today when I was doing the work on the bike I noticed the pitting or rust starting to establish itself again on the upper tubes. Beware of this and keep and eye out to maintain the polish of the tubes. 1,500 or 1,000 grit works best.
