What models and what advice?

I would look at a complete strip down, clean and replacement of all gaskets.

If I know what models you have, I may have some 'bits' from my rebuild.

I might have some parts for the T1. Can't remember if I got rid or not.
I had fork sliders; tool box cover; some fork seals; engine fin rubbers; etc.

I'll have a looksee tomorrow.
