Suspension Help

So about 7,000 miles ago I had Patrick setup my suspension and it rode great.. Whoever the past month or so the bike has felt like a$$ its bouncy and does not feel stable in the corners. I now have 13,000 miles, do I need the suspension set up again or what any ideas or advice?

Well, I would just drop by Pat's and have him do a little adjustment for you. Many things could be occuring but, it is likely the suspension is settling in and just needs to be tweaked.

Let's cover the simple stuff first; what's your tire pressure at?
Right now, especially with the wide ranging changes in temp, your tire pressure may be low. I'd recommend 36 psi. front and 34-36 psi. rear.
If that doesn't cure it, bring it by and we'll see what's going on.

Well the tires still look good there not bald or lumpy, however I have picked up a few pounds. The tire pressures are at 34 front and 36 rear, I have always checked them weekly. What about the fork oil as far as I know its never been changed?

I recommend fork oil change on a street bike at least every 10,000 miles. Like the old saying goes; "if you notice a big change in performance when you changed your fork oil, you waited too long."
