does anyone know what stock travel is on our bikes, travel after "sag" is acounted for?

I just stopped really hard the other day as i tend to do and i feel like the front fork is riding lower than normal?

could this be possible without blowing oil out the seals?

oh yeah 03 rr

Just put a zip tie around one of your fork tubes and it will end up at the furthest point of compression when you brake hard.

To be exact, you have 110mm (@ 4-1/4") of normal travel and 10mm of "emergency" travel. So that gives you a total travel of a little less than 4-3/4".

When's the last time you changed the fork oil? If it has been changed what was the fork oil level set at and how?

You may be using more travel than you are accustomed to, but you're still not using full suspension travel. You're either very light or still haven't gotten real aggresive with your braking

If you find the right shop less than $100. I think I paid like $40 but I pulled the forks and took it to them. Call around your local area. Are you local to me? I can give you a number for someone.
