two wheels, the fork oil issue is a good catch. Is that difficult? Any recommendation on specific cSt or brand?
We have a 2009 that I have been going through. Things seem to have held up quite well. When we got it, I did a short period oil change to make sure any gunk was out. Would have done two brake fluid changes except it seemed just fine the first time through.
Alignment was off from the hash marks in the rear, just a little bit.
Rattles in the fairing traced to cracked fasteners - also put in some stick-on foam to cushion the panels.
Runs slightly better with 100% gasoline.
There's a vacuum hose between the throttle bodies fix here somewhere that I have the hose for, but haven't gotten around to.
