Boppity-boppity-boppity over the road... Just the front wheel. Gets real annoying. Feels like no dampening, just spring action. The bike is an 03 1800 "S", with progressive springs all around. I'm running synth ATF for fork oil (old dirt bike trick). 62K miles overall, 10K since changing springs and oil. I know the fork sliders have some wear on them, but that would affect lateral movement, not dampening, right? (no lateral play felt when front tire raised off ground) Any easy way to check fork oil levels accurately without complete disassembly? (Gawd, I wish Honda had put in a sight glass or something) Spring is here, and it's too nice to stop riding and tear down, dammit!:mad:

to add your post.... to MUCH oil will lock up the fork action.
