Watched and helped change my fork oil

That stuff was nasty.

I know the bike is 12y.o. I bet that suspension is one part that always get neglected.

New engine/tranny.
New sprokets/chain.
Fresh forks.
Fresh tires.

Need:
New rear suspension. I'll probably get a nitro refill for now until I can save up for ohlins.

Bout time I recovered from that borc ride.

Time to ride!

Im hoping a nitrogen recharge can last me a few months. I'm having an unplanned trip to Brazil so my toy-moneys just went down the drain.

What I'm saving up for:

On my bike, all seals were changed and parts cleaned. I'd say that my project was a 'rebuild' project.

I was told that oil change would have been a lot less troublesome: just undo top, pour out old oil, pump the interior cylinder oil out, then put new oil in, pump the interior cylinder so new oil gets in, let bubbles settle, put more oil in.

Whether that's the right process or not, idk. We were just talking about it.

I'm sure there are youtube vids for a generic fork oil change process.

stock for right now unfortunately... I'll upgrade when I need to change the oil again.

Do you have plans on the weekend of 29th? I'd love to see some roads in your neck of the woods.

nothing overly exciting down south but yeah, i think we can arrange that. hit me up this time next week.

changing fork springs is a breeze. no need to wait for the next oil change. and they're much cheaper than ohleens. when you feel how mine handles with the heavier springs, you won't believe it's the same bike as yours.
