Classic front springs

Post by mickm » Fri Oct 18, 2019 9:08 am

I suspect that a P O has changed/ messed about with the front springs on my Classic. Is their a way of beefing the front end up. On my Commander I cut the springs down then replaced the removed portion with a alloy billet. Any advice welcome.

Hi Mike,when I put the Triumph Sprint Fairing on my Classic, to compensate for the extra weight I put a tad more oil in the forks,don't know if this would help you.
What symptoms are you getting that makes you think the p.o.messed around with your forks? J.B.

Hi J B the forks bottom out. Sometimes the guard touches the front brake junction manifold. I'll add some more oil as you sugested. Thanks Mick.
