Blimey how does that work? What are the bushings made of that they absorb the GT? The spray stuff is Teflon in solvent isn't it?
I shouldn't have stated it as a fact above, I have no source other than my own experience.
I'm not going to lie and say I know why, but I am 99% certain it is what fecked my forks.
I'd assume it was a solvent other than the Teflon as I've had no issues with other teflon based lubes on my forks.
What happened is that I opened them up and they were fine if a little dirty. I didn't have any IPA to hand so I instead sprayed GT85 on a cloth then used this to degrease and clean the seals, I wiped it off and upon reassembly they were immediately very tight and had loads of stiction. Felt a bit like an old ZZYXY fork if anyone remembers those
After an embarrassing trip to the LBS to admit my error and have the bushings replaced the forks were good as gold again. (the seals were not changed)
I suppose if the seals are in perfect nick, the GT85 shouldn't get inside anyway, but i'm not taking the chance
