Hello fellow XJR chums!

Ive bought this lovely 2002 model from a friend who has lost the biking buzz (although he's had it from new and done 8,000 miles so it was a pretty low buzz to begin with :-)

The Ohlins have been restored and its a super smooth ride but in common with others I find the reluctance to tip in to corners less than great. Ive read the posts on front fork changes but its unfortunately still a mystery to me so I have a photo attached of the forks as they are now. Please could someone advise if perhaps getting the blue rings in the middle up or down one or two would help (I did say its a mystery J)

Any advice greatly appreciated - I plan to use this bike over weekends in the summer whilst I use my Trophy SE for work and I love peg scraping!

Thank you very much

Richard

Google Setting fork sag, or something like that Pal. Turning the blue preload adjuster in will stiffen the front, out will soften it. As a general rule of thumb you want the front and back to compress the same amount, about 20mm. But I'd check your tyre pressures before anything, is it wanting to stand up in corners? I run 42psi in the rear and 36psi in the front.
I'm Only 4fut3 But I Look A Lot Bigger From A Distance?
