Pleased with FD

You guys have me pretty paranoid about FD failures, so I'm constantly listening and feeling for a disaster. Changed the fluid when I got the bike, and just changed again to see what's going on. Could not ask for much more. One photo (assuming they come through) is the plug right out of the hole, the other is after I wiped it clean.

Re: Pleased with FD

How many miles since the last fluid change?

If 10 miles, you might have a problem. If 20k, I'd say you're doing fine.
