Suspension Noob: Basic maintenance/checks?
I am fixing up a K2 Vee with 47K miles on it. What should I know about suspension? I know everyone talks about replacing the front fork springs and upgrade the rear suspension, but I am more concerned about knowing/testing what I have to know if I have a problem already or going to happen.
Personally, I don't feel any major issues on the suspension, sure maybe a little bit of dive on the front when I brake hard, but generally the bike handles anything (paved) well as far as I can tell.
How would I know the condition of the forks? Fork Oil? etc. It's not like there is a sight glass.....so any tricks or basic maintenance tricks short of pulling them off the bike completely, enlighten me please.
