07 suspension replaced and results
Before the wife and I took a three day trip to the Smokies, I had the suspension redone.
I had 55k miles and the rear shock was toast. Not much damping and signs of leaking. The roller bearings at the bottom had some flat-spotting. I greased everything and replaced it with a 2016 rear shock.
In the front I replaced the bushings, seals, and fluid. The fluid needed changing, but everything else was fine, but I changed it anyway. I went with Honda SS8 10w fork oil which is actually around 7.4w.
We started with the factory settings and dialed everything in for our weight here at home before we headed out.
Anyway, WOW! What a difference! We felt like we bought a new bike!
