Oil height !!!

Decided to strip down the forks after getting fed up of the harsh front end. Checked the manual and what other guys reccomended, 130 mm from top of tube, fully compressed.

Mine were full to the top, even after trying to bleed for quite some time. (Put them into a shop to get done last time)

So shocked that I rang a mate to double check.

Feeling more plush now, but have to start with the clickers again now!

cool deal... glad it was that easy....

Easy fix but expected big problems. Last time I'll let a shop do them for me!

i hear ya... used to do the same thing... take them off, take them in...wait for days...pay the money....

i bought my own seal driver(way cool) and do my own now... peace of mind if nothing else...and not that hard either...

when i got my wr, the clickers were all way off... set them back to the center of the range and start there.. check sag also ...

then take a ride where you can concentrate on setting the bike up and take your time...

Hey durser,

That's pretty much what I expected. Glad it was something simple and good to hear you'll be doing you own stuff from now on.

I've had nothing but problems with so called factory trained mechanics my whole riding career. That's precisely why I learned to do everything required to maintain my bikes properly. Cheaper, you know it's done right the first time and the ever important sense of accomplishment of a job well done. Only down side is it can be a little time consuming.

Well said. Nobody's going to do as good of job on your bike as you are :smirk:
