    Leaking SR Suntour fork?

    I've ridden my new GT Agressor Pro for about 5 times now and after every use I've noticed a grease residue on the fork sanctions. I have some pictures at the moment after rinsing the whole bike with water so the marks aren't as pronounced.
    I usually wipe it off after every ride. Is this normal?

    well, i'd say not leaking, lubricating...bu since you only post pictures of issue after cleaning can't be sure...
    All the gear and no idea.

    Normal, you want to wipe that stuff off your shaft and reapply a light coat of the appropriate lubricant so as to preserve the fork seals. That in turn will keep the fork running smooth .you need to do that everytime you see spooge/dirt mixed in with the grease on that fork stanchion.

    That is not a bad fork, about the equivalent of a rockshox Silver fork, probably made in the same factory.Enjoy your bike....life is good.
