FWIW, that fork started to show dark tracks or rings from the first ride. I thought it might settle in over time, but it's only gotten worse. So whatever is causing it has nothing to do with rocks or road damage.In defense of the dealer, their response was to my first call about the issue. The photos (I hope) make it clear that I'm not just whining about a faint trace of oil on the fork.The bike is scheduled for its 600 mile service on May 24th, so they can see it then....or sooner if they want me to bring it in for inspection.What will I do if MG doesn't want to cover it?Options range from paying the dealer & trying to get a discount, doing it myself....to just selling my bikes and dropping a company that won't stand behind its products. I could have a lot of fun with a Morgan or Caterham.
I shudder to think of your reaction to an actual problem.
If the fork seal has puked enough to puddle on the garage floor even if wiping the seal cures the leak, shouldn't the fork oil level be topped off? Dealer should do it. If it were me, I'ld look at it as a chance to get to know my bike and do it myself. Get the dealer to fork over seal and oil and spend an afternoon in the garage.
Seems this has worked out , it is amazing how being reasonable usually ends in good results Dusty[/quote Now now Dusty, as Paul Mc Cartney said "Let it Be"

MGPilot, if your's is the new Norge I saw on the floor at Moto International when I took my new 2014 Norge there for its first service, it looked like one of the fork seals was leaking, and it had not even been sold or ridden yet!If that one is your's, then I think it is a warranty issue.PS: If you got your new Norge for $9,990, then you got a heck of a deal! I paid $1,000 more for mine, and it was one year older out of the gate. If I were in your shoes, I would request warranty coverage, citing the leaking fork seal when on the showroom floor, but I would not force the issue...
Interesting that he made the point that the valves should be adjusted as pairs (simultaneously) or the difference in pressure can throw off the adjustment if you try to do one at a time.Learn something every day.

Yeah, I brought that up in the Lario rehab thread. I hadn't seen it mentioned on here at that time. It's harder than it sounds, if you are anal about it and want both to be *perfect*.
