Front Fork Replacement
I have a V-strom 650 Adventure with 65,000 on it now. However, when it had maybe 50,000 I had the front fork rebuilt. I was surprised when less than 8 months and 12,000 miles later I had to have it rebuilt again.
Shouldn’t the rebuild have lasted longer than that and what are your opinion on the dealer responsibility for what seems to me their not having done the job right in the first place?
It was rebuilt in May, 2018 and again in Feb 2019. The lion’s share of the mileage between was from a trip across the country on highways and roadways. No off road travel or rough terrain.
