Fork noise

Post by Psycheonabike » Sat Mar 02, 2019 12:05 pm



Hi,

Inline with me trying to work out why my ride is so dammed bumpy...i was out today trying different suspension setting all with no luck. When I was turning her round I could hear the fork.oil 'squelching' as rhe forks bobbed up and down. Really loud, like the noise when you swish water around your mouth 🤣 ...daft analogy but oddly accurate!!

Is this normal (never had it with any of my other bikes)? Fork oil need changing?

Would this explain the uncomfortable bumpy ride?

All advice welcome...ta!
