Dang.....read all the hub about the stock fork oil in the 650r....and.....holy s t the description was right on....it really is whale snot!!!....where do they get this stuff??? and why would Honda put it in my forks??? The steering stem bearings looked like the assembly dude dribbled a drop or two of motor oil on each one....linkage bearings were well greased though Glad I only took one short ride on my bike before checking this stuff One question for the fork specialists out there: After the forks were back together and installed I checked the rebound settings on the cap. One was at the stock setting, 9 out, but the other was at 15 out. When I put both at 9 the adjuster screw for the fork that was at 15 was much deeper in the cap than the other. Maybe thats why it was at 15 out, to match the level of the other?? Both forks went back together the same way. What causes the screws to be at different heights? Is it a problem?
