Ok guys, here is the latest. I picked the bike up and suspension guy informed me that the r/h fork tube was not bent but was slightly ovaled at the top from being clamped in a vice too hard possibly. this has caused more wear than normal in the upper area of the tube. He replaced the bushes and the this has reduced any excessive movement, in saying this, I wold imagine the fork life will be reduced somewhat. Any way I can't afford another fork tube just yet. so i took the bike for a ride last night and I'm blown way by the difference, i don't know if it will require further adjustment just yet as I have been up the mountains yet and I will never outride the bikes capabilities. thank you all for your help and advise, take care and stay upright. Cheers PS I will post some photos this wek end.
