Brutale 800 compression side fork weeping oil

Haven't really played much with my fork adjustments on my 2014 B800. But gave it a quarter turn "softer" on the weekend.

About an hour into my ride noticed a bit of oil collecting on the top fork nut. Don't think it's coming from the upper seal but hard to tell where, and it's not pouring out or anything.

Could it be coming from the adjuster?

Yes it could mate, it's just an O-ring used for sealing. I'd carefully wind the adjuster all the way in while counting the "clicks", and then back out to where you had it, the O-ring might just need a little movement to help it seat and seal properly again.

Thanks, Donsy.

No clicks with the adjuster, as it's just a screw in and out affair. So wound it all in, slowly, and all out, slowly, then back to where it was approximately.

Will report back!

No worries mate, when there's no "clicker", count the turns ok.

found mine leaking yesterday as well . . I've turned the screw all way in and 1 turn out to see if it still leaks.

Need rain to stop before I can check though

I have been waiting on the oem o-ring to fix my problem, but ended up replacing the o-ring with a BS-006 and that has fixed my leak.
When I took off the old o-ring it wasnt very stretchy and broke, so I had a fair idea that was the problem
