Thumbs up Front Fork Question - 2013 SFV650

i thought a racer might be a good person to ask a question....

i noticed that the front end of my SFV is acting strangely. Whenever I turn the handlebars right or left, the forks feel like they are weighted and could turn all the way to the stop unless I interfere.. There is a tendency for the fork to go all the way to the stop if I begin to turn the handle bar either to the right or left..

thank you

Default Re: Front Fork Question - 2013 SFV650

more information needed.

which way are you turning your bars to go left or right e.g. are you turning your bars left to go right or right to go right?

do you have the correct tyre pressures in both tyres?

has the bike been crashed at any point?
