Hello, I have noticed that there is a fluid leak on the fork, and I'm honestly scared a bit, knowing the price it's gonna take to fix it all up. Breaks have lost almost all effect, it's covered in fluids. How can I fix this? I tried looking online and found no parts that I can use to replace it. Do I have to take to to a dealership? And how much would it cost to get it repaired?

My CPX leaks as well and it's only after 16000km. All bikes leak there sooner or later but rarely this soon. It is not considered an expensive repair as it involves the exchange of the faulty oil seals and a refill of oil but I was amazed as well to see that super soco does not supply the required spares. Lucky for us we can find these seals as universal spare parts in many shops. I haven't repaired mine though since the oil leak is not that serious but I will update this thread once I do this.

i have also tried getting replacement seals for the forks in case they start to leak but unfortunately my dealer said they don’t supply replacement seals but only the fork assembly as a whole. Which is unbelievable really as seals would cost at most £10 but instead we are expected to pay hundreds.

im hoping when I take mine apart they are standard size seals that I can find elsewhere, which is hopefully likely as they seem to use fairly generic parts all over the bike.

Here is hoping you can simply reseal the shocks.
Upside down forks work well until they coat front brakes in leaked fluid.
As an alternative to dealer parts, see superbuy.com
I have not seen replacement forks anywhere else, and I have not ordered these.
FYI only. Attached is a pic and here is a link that may work:

https://www.superbuy.com/en/page/buy/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fitem.taobao.com%2Fitem.htm%3Fid%3D621335615045%26ns%3D1%26abbucket%3D18%23detail&nTag=Agent-product-taobao

Each is USD $148.87, and is modified. Or so the title says, and there is no product info given. Shipping may also prove dear, especially for long items. I've had good experience with superbuy, but their search engine is not the best. Search "su ke soco tc" for parts. A good result is 23 pages of stuff, but it varies greatly.

Good luck!
