Front forks

Post by bjatwood » Fri Aug 31, 2012 10:37 am

I bnought this 98SE in March and have been riding the heck out of it. I was reading the owners manual and read the forks should have 6lbs of air in them. Well I checked mine and low and behold I had nothing. I put 6lbs of air in and man what a difference, it is soooo much smoother now. It feels like a new bike. Just thought I would share this tidbit of info with y'all.

That's interesting - mine was riding so hard with 6 lbs, I took them down to zero. It's much better (to me) that way.

I plan to rebuild my front forks (and rear shocks!) this winter, so we'll see if that makes any difference.
