Life is grand!
I just did the 20,000 mile service on my 03 Ultra over the Christmas break. Did everything to spec, plus changed both tires, and installed a MRC clutch. The final required maintenance item (preceeding the road test) was to swap out the fork oil. Wha?? I've never swapped out fork oil on any of my previous bikes, why would it be required at 20K on a HD. Dunno?? Anyone have any experience with the life span of the fork oil and why it would need to be swapped out so soon? It's quite a bit of work to pull the forks off and swap out the oil, and if it's not a critical reqirement then I'd rather not do it. But then, if not changing the oil with ruin the fork seals or something else then I'll swap out the oil. Just never had to do this before. Comments anyone???
