Hi. I've just taken delivery of an 83 Aspencade (naked / std ). A couple of small probs are apparent. firstly, handle bars are bent. Secondly, one rear shock is leaking oil. Seems an easy enough fix, but the third is that the front forks seem really stiff like there no rebound, but when I pulled off my driveway they bottomed out ! SoI used the compressor to up the pressure, which worked but the forks seem almost solid in operation. My question (finally) is, is this normal and what are the 4 settings on the anti dive housing. looks like the screw head is used to change the setting, but I have no operating manual for the bike yet. Anyone help please ??
