I have not had this problem on my XT's but on another bike... I have fixed this problem with some JB weld.

Pull the pipe out. Clean and then roughen with fine sand paper.. Assemble with JB weld, very thin layer on the pipe.

Hope you do, as myself & plenty others would like to know if the solution offered actually worked? all to often guys ask the question & find the solution but never bother to post there results for others to learn from.

Forums are a knowledge bank of info & work so much better if the person who have asked the question gives feedback/results, rather than just pissing off for a ride on there fixed bike.

So cleaned and prepared the pipe and have used scotchweld.....will take overnight to harden so will check again tomorrow night when I start work again and will report back the findings.....there was no seal inside....just pulled straight out so in theory the scotchweld should work....
