So, gonna top off the pump and see how that helps the ride. Looking into the other areas that might be causing some harsh rides..
Progressive springs and tapered all ball head bearing at 38,200 Fork seals replaced (left seal leaking). anti-dive disabled......... AT 47467 fork seals replaced while doing some other work.
Are all of the GL1800 shock springs interchangeable.. will 2016 spring fit 2009 ? This may be something I will do later.
What about head bearings......This morning... Doing the pull test with scales, the right turns at 1.5 lbs of pull. The left fork pulls at 4.5. Big a difference from the right and left. Measured several time and pulled from the top of fork, middle of fork, and lower fork. Lbs. of pull did not change more than a fraction.????????
Now at 57,465, the ride is muchbetter than prior, but fairly rough ride when on a not so good road.
There is no looseness in thesteering, smooth from side to side.
Should the lb reading been similar from sideto side or is something wrong here. with one side being over 4 and the other being 1.5. Any ideas why so different. is that a problem.
