Question about 1983 Suzuki Gs 550 L
I just got a GS 550E with really low miles It was sitting along time. I noticed that there is traces of oil on the front forks. It is not really leaking but there is a trace. I notice that the forks are kinda bouncy. Would it help if I change the fork oil? can I also replace the springs without taking the whole thing apart. I also notice that there is a air pressure fitting on the top what is that about?
A trace is normal, to much is not. that probable is due to dryed out fork seal, as they ere not getting lubed due to inactivity. the air fittings are for ajustable damping. if you ride 2 up or yourself being heavy or you just want a firmer fork suspension. i don;t know the range for your bike. try asking the dealer.or just put in 5 lbs. and try. if the presure doesn't last then you have leaky seals......
