I bought the Sealmate as a last resort when I noticed that my forks were leaking significantly... As I'm sure everyone already knows, having your fork seals replaced can get expensive, and doing it yourself is one heck of a job! I've read where people recommend taking 35mm film negatives and using them as you would use the Sealmate, but seeing as i haven't seen actual film in years i thought i would give this a shot. All i can say is wow! The Sealmate worked the 1st try. I've ridden several hours since cleaning the inside of the seals with the Sealmate and i haven't seen a drop of fork oil since! Much Much Much cheaper than a complete seal job and provided the desired results! Anyone contemplating a seal job because of a leaking problem, don't spend hundreds of dollars before you try the Sealmate! I RECOMMEND TO ANYONE IN MY SITUATION!!
