SP1 front shocks bottoming out after fork seal replacement.
Like the title says, my RC has been a great bike, but I am getting sick of the little niggling maintenance issues. I just got the left fork seal replaced, because it was leaking, and now the suspension is bottoming out, with everything on the same adjustment. SO I raised the preload and put everything stiffer, and it still bottoms out while hard braking and if I hit any sort of a bump. It did bottom out sometimes very slightly before the fork seal change.
So, question: did I do something wrong, or are the springs toast? I am 255 lbs with gear, and maybe I am just too big for this thing?
Is there a common mistake in doing the fork seals that might make the bike bottom out? any help appreciated. 2000 Sp1, about 20K miles, wrecked many times, basically a stunt bike.
