Ok so today i went for my first real ride of the season. Me and a few other bikes went for a ride threw NY. I was doing about 70 on the highway when i hit a pot hole, i almost went down but i didnt and i dont know how i didnt go down. I pull over and my right fork is leaking oil. My friend was like you fu*ked up your seals. My warrenty just ran up 2 weeks ago. Is it going to cost a lot to fix? Plus could i do it myself? Thanks for all the help guys.

The seals are about 50 bucks, and will probably take 1.5-2 hours of labor to do, so prolly about 200 bucks. They take a special tool to take apart and put back together so its kinda hard to do yourself.

you can save money if you can take the forks off the bike yourself. If you're really in a bind, you can just fix the one fork that has the leak.

To be totally honest, if it started leaking, its got a 90% chance of being bent. I would take the forks off the bike (really not that hard if you have the proper stand) and have them looked at. If there isn't a visible kink in them, they can probably be straightened.
