    sounds like the bushings and/or the seals in the forks on the fatty are acting up....whats the life expectancy on these components assuming the forks have never been rebuilt. i changed the hydraulic oil when i took possession and it was quit dirty. i dont have any service records either :(

            toor, I would think if the bushings in the fork tubes were bad, you would see your seal life evaporate in a matter of weeks, not to mention it would damage the inner fork tubes, and produce scratches that are visible. I've seen several bad bushings over the years. but never on a bike that has had the fork oil changed out regularly. Unless of course a low mile bike has a mis-alignment problem, or fork damage from a lay down that cannot be seen by the naked eye...do you have any visible scratches on the fork shafts ??
