My forks have a slight weep, so i got some oil, dust and oil seals. I had to take the bike in to get the front tyre replaced, the mechanic noticed it. He mentioned that the forks have bushes that would need changing on a bike thats 19 years old.

I have looked at the repair manual but cant see any bushes in the forks.Does the ZX12 have bushes.

The forks do have bushings. But I don’t believe they are serviceable. I could not get the lower out with modest effort. But I don’t have access to good fork tool. Maybe the shop has ways to do it. But I’m fairly sure they can’t be serviced.
