scary, glad nothing happened while you were riding... will the dealer eat this?
I've heard of this before, done on purpose at the factory. I guess the theory is that one fork will damp, the other will rebound, and the axle & triples will moderate the action of the two so you get roughly appropriate rebound & damping.Buzzi said:I upgraded my fork on my '05 M620. After removing the original fork, I compressed both fork legs to see the difference in compression with my new fork. One of the fork leg has damping, but the other fork leg just bounced up and down. I didn't see any leak from the bad fork leg and I didn't bother to open it and see if there're enough oil or missing parts. The bike only had 4000miles when I replaced them with fully adjustable fork. Too bad I didn't know it before I took them off the bike. I would had bring my bike into the dealer to get a warranty repair.
qfactor said:Alright latest update:
I got to look at the internals that came out of the forks compared to the new ones sent from DNA. Totally different parts, the ones removed from the forks are completely unknown by any of the ducati mechanics at the shop.
They ordered all new internals and caps from DNA. Those showed up a week later with the wrong caps. Another week later the correct caps show up.
After they thought they had it all set and on it's way. The P/Ns for the internals didn't match what should be in an S2R. They need the bike to change everything again. I have to wait another week before the new parts come in.
I am very very upset with Ducati at this point. I had bought the monster as my primary transportation, I have been vehicle less for 3 weeks now.
I wrote an email to DNA this morning as soon as I heard from the dealership.
waiting on the reply, will post step by step info.
San Diego. But for forks, I'm only a ups truck and a few days away.qfactor said:Chris,
where are you located w/ those stock forks?
Good memory man. [thumbsup]Charlief said:WOW....now I have heard this before from another local guy. I believe his DML handle is Jammen. He has since moved to CA. I only met him a couple times at a local hang out (MM) and he told me that his 620 had always felt a little light in the front end. This kid rode ALOT....like 30K miles in a 18 months...something like that.
Any way...he brought his bike to the dealer (BCM) to get some suspension upgrades and upon taking the front apart ...one tube had little or no oil in it....I'm not sure about the hard parts. I'm typing this all from memory but I'm sure thats the story.
