Forks

Post  appleseed on Wed Dec 31, 2014 6:15 pm

I just changed the fork oil and noticed the one for is easier to push down that the other (for the first inch or two), I dont know if it was like this before is started.

I am pretty sure both have the same amount of oil and the comp and rebound are set the same on both

any ideas would be appreciated.

Are you sure the oil level its the same ? you could have some air trapped in there .

I did leave them for about 30 minutes before reinstalling the springs, but I will take them out and double check as there may be some air trapped

Did you pump the new oil through the piston or did you just pour the oil in?
