Can't answer your question but wanted to ask a related one. Sorry if I'm hijacking your thread.

Noticed my forks seem 'sticky' (not a particularly smooth telescopic action) and wondered what might be the cause. Why did you get the oil changed? Does your bike have high ks?

What weight oil is in these forks anyway? Mine's a High Ball.

Thanks.

Don't know where you live.
Might just be a bad Tech that didn't clean up very good. Whip off really good and if it comes back go back and tell them something is wrong
