Question
Hi Gary,Ive bought my 5 year old son a second hand yamaha pw50 and ive noticed the front forks are leaking oil,ive been quoted 60 labour and 20 parts from a repair shop to fix them.Do you think it would be worth my while buying a pw50 manual and trying to fix them myself and would it also be an easy fix?
   Thanks very much for yoour time.
         Neil.

Answer

Hi Neil,

You must have clicked on my profile instead of Gary's.
You will have to ask your question again on Gary's
proflie.

The PW50 can be tricky due to the construction of them.
They usually just use grease and are not oil filled.
They are held together with some crimps in the bottom tube
which requires careful drilling to remove.
Check this page for more info or ask your question again on Gary's profile.
