Need 2  Fork top plugs for a '88 K100 RT. Mine are threaded and are leaking at the filler bolt.

Any help is truly appreciated.

I drilled the holes out a bit and put schrader valves in, not rubber but the all metal, but no air pressure worked great.

Have you tried to change the aluminium gaskets?

That's a good idea Rick, i like it. Inge, the thread of the top's is really bad the 10mm filler bolts are almost loose.

Thanks for the reply, i ended up finding a couple from an old BMW nut that lives about 40min away. All is well again.
