If it can pull dirt out, I can only imagine it will push far more in, which will then be trapped between the seal and the upper bush.

Quick fix but I'd be rebuilding them ASAP.

Will you rebuilld them yourself?
I've done fork rebuilds many times in the past but that was when I had a proper garage with a work bench. Most likely I'll drop them but then get someone local to do them.

If you can drop them out of the bike I could quote you to rebuild and post back?

If you're interested, drop me a PM with the bike details (reg etc.)

Ta. Realistically, it's going to be next year... I've already dropped a wedge of cash on a new rear shock - I'm not going to balance the books this year.
