Been having problems with my front suspension on my 1800.Had progressive springs installed and had the fork oil changed.Well the oil was thick as syrup and needed changed.What a difference this made,dealer said fork oil gets old needs to be changed sooner,anyway I have 76,000 on the bike and she rides like new again...:action:

Yes fork oil should be changed and in my opinion every year. It deteriorates slowly so you might not notice it until it is really bad. Why there is no recommended interval on fork oil is a mystery unless they just figure the seals will go sooner or later and it will get changed then.

Why in the world would you use Harley Davidson fork oil??????

You do realize that your forks are going to vibrate and rattle now, don't you?:cooldevil::clapper:

You might need rubber mounts on your forks!!!!:D

I don't know, first it was using Harley mufflers to replace rotted out wing mufflers now they're using the super secret fork oil for that "smooth as a Harley feel". It reminds me of an old Johnny Cash sang a song years ago about building a Cadillac from pieces over time, which almost applies here I think it was called "one Piece at a time".Too bad wings only make the mashed potato sound with Harley mufflers.!! HA!

Gee if you use any more Harley parts to replace the ones that fell off, you will need to get a new title.,,
