I have a 98 1500 SE and the front forks act like they are bound up while riding. If I bounce them while sitting they act perfect. But hitting bumps in the road it is like the shocks do not move at all. Air pressure has been tried from zero to 6 lbs. Bearings are at spec and front tire is at 40 lbs. pressure which is high but this is what has been recommended on the forum and it does handle much better there than at the specified pressure. Fork oil has also been changed and the proper amount added back in. Factory oil was used.
