I bought my 2006 LT 6 months ago with 60K km. I felt the suspension to be stiff but did not pay attention.
I am now making the winter overhaul and looking at the suspension could not see anything wrong
I measured the deflexion of the front and rear suspension (different height when suspension fully extended and when loaded with one rider).
I found the following results:
front deflexion: 5.5 cm
rear deflexion (with preload completely relaxed): 3.0cm.
In general the deflexion should be half the total travel of the suspension.
The front is OK, the travel being 100mm
The rear is surprising, the travel being 130mm.
Thanks in advance
