I know this has been covered elsewhere but I have read through most posts and cant find the answer I am looking for
My front forks are bone jarringly stiff, I almost lost my Sena unit this morning as it bounced off my helmet. Here is what I have done so far -
Gone through Randakks procedure twice
Replaced what seamed to be very thick fork oil the OP had put in with 7.5W
This didnt work so went to 5W
This didn't work so last night went to 2.5W
Tried reducing the quantity of oil to well below recommended amounts
What weight oil are people using?
All seals are ok, no signs of any leaks, replaced recently by PO
Stanchions were replaced by PO quite recently with aftermarket units. There is positively no play in the forks at all.
There seems to be very little difference in performance after any change I have made, but If anything going to 2.5W seems to have made it worse so am I going in the wrong direction, my understanding is a lighter oil would give a softer ride but am I wrong.
My gut feeling is the new stanchions are slightly oversize and sticking under load, has this been known to happen?
Is there anything else I can try?
Thanks for any help.
