My 84 vf1000f was recently at the mechanics getting the fork seals done and the mechanic noticed how stiff my front forks are. The right hand fork doesnt want to compress, he said the left is fine. Going over bumps isnt fun, super stiff.
Are there any known issues with the dampers on these bikes? Ive had the forks apart and fully clean then out, had been stiff since I got it.
Another thing I’ve noticed it when I let off the throttle and decelerate, no brakes, I can hear the transmission making a lot of noise. Sounds like loose gear cogs rattling as them sing. Is the tranny on the way out?
Any help is appreciated
