Here I am riding along on my 2000 FXST and along comes a bump...

There it is ..once again I here this clunk noise coming from the triple tree area. It seemed to do it when I got the bike, but I think it's gotten worse.

My fear is the &%#@ forks comin' off.

Any Advice....

My '99 does the same thing. I have the shorter springs installed but I suspect the fork oil level might be a little down.

Q: Is it worth trying a heavier fork oil if the fluid level is OK or will I risk blowing out a seal or something?

Haven't had this problem myself (yet ...), but it was discussed on another group. Three fixes were mentioned: "replace the fork oil with SE heavy fork oil", "install a fork brace", and "have the dealer do the neck bearing adjustment (whatever that is...)"
