search tool not working properly ?

It seem that everytime I do a research on the forum for technical information, I can't get good results because some words are excluded. I just searched for "fork oil level" and here is the message I get

"The following words are either very common, too long, or too short and were not included in your search: fork, oil"

So I can't search for word that have less than 5 caracters on the forum, but if I do search the same thing in google (say v-strom fork oil level) Half of the result on the first page are on this forum !

Am I doing something wrong ?

Don't use the search button in the top line. The immense number of posts here required reducing the usability in order to keep the word index from becoming uncontrollably large. Use the Google Custom search box below the line instead.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Please vote in the poll on what Strom(s) you have at
