My last gripe for this evening :wink:
Hope yous can see from this photo, its the back of a lower fork leg (alloy) is that a tear/fracture/split running length wise down the leg. I can catch it with my finger nails, its got a little chrome cleaner in it just now (that was me).

Whatcha think? :?

I'd say a scratch based on it being pretty unusual for a crack in that direction on a stantion.

It's on the lowers TK not the stanchion.

Rob brought the fork with him when he picked me up the morning,when he took it out the car it was weeping oil,pretty indicative of a crack :?
