So sorry to hear that! I can't answer to your issue, as I am on a 2006 model A with ABS.
Orion is fantastic, on all surfaces. I wonder if there is a failure of the forks themselves, like there is not enough oil in them, from the factory?
And what about tire pressure? Is it to the spec for the bike?
I had to show a friend, that the tire pressure specification on the head tube is the pressure you are supposed to use, not the Max for the tire on its sidewall!
After we got that straight, his bike was so much more rideable!
I am just guessing now, but have you pulled the negative battery cable, to let the ECU reset? Wonder if it got scrogged, and can't make the necessary adjustments to the ES?
Now I am intrigued...
