OK guys, I bought this bike 5/11/12 with 7,923 miles and as of 6/27/12 I have 14,051 miles. In Colorado while pulling my Bunkhouse (solo) through the passes I managed to scrape the centerstand on both sides. Later while chauffeuring the wife around on a photo expedition the scraping was worse. This continued after the MOA National in Missouri while riding the twisties in Arkansas. It got so bad that I ripped off my brand new Ilium Works sidestand foot (I found it in the middle of a curve on the way back from a beer run to Big Flat Arkansas). Now for the pertinent information. Stock suspension, pre-load adjuster fully tightened, tires full (42F 48R). What are your suggestions (remember that I'm a cheap bastard)? I will assume I need to add oil to the adjuster but what else will give me the most bang for the buck? I just can't see dropping $1,500.00 - $1,700.00 on Ohlin's on a bike with this low mileage (besides I only paid $6,950.00 for the bike (Remember the cheap bastard statement?)). Help me guys!
