    Question Do you really replace fork oil every 4 months?

    Seems a little excessive but thatís what it seems to say in the 2017 manual. Says to replace at 25k miles or 4 months which ever is sooner.... wow lot of miles in 4 months to hit the mile limit. Think itís a miss print and they ment 4 years?

    I usually get it replaced every year, at the end of the season.
    When in doubt, gas it

    I looked in the 17 manual I have and did not see that, please scan the page you are seeing and post here.
