TRAC Valve Leak & Brake Fluid Mystery
Thanks guys.

I'll have a look at the brake pads when I pull the wheel off for the tire replacement in the next day or two.

Regarding the leak underneath the TRAC valve on the speedometer sender unit, that's the only place there is any fluid and it's not a large amount, i.e. it's not dripping off of the bottom, it's just wet on the surface. There is no fluid leaking from the fork seals. In fact there is no fluid anywhere but on the speedometer sender unit.

When I get the wheel off I'll pull off the fork brace so that I can work each fork slider up and down independently and see if I can feel a difference between the left and right side. If so, I'm probably low on fluid on the left side where its wet on the bottom. If I detect a difference I guess I'll have to flush and refill that fork which will give me a chance to disassemble and check the TRAC valve on that side.

I did check the parts microfiche and I see that you can get the big gasket that seals the TRAC valve housing. I may just buy two of those before I even get started.

Thanks again.
