Dear sir My 2006 Honda Unicorn covered 28000 kms, I used to change the engine oil every 2500 kms. and using genuine Honda engine oil. Recently I changed the fork oil. But the vehicle is not smooth as before, kindly suggest with regards, anu cajetan

  • Dear Anu,
    this may occur due to some dust or the fitting of the fork.
    pls visit a honda service centre for further clarification.
    resently my byk had an accident there was a minor bend in d fork which causde the fork to malfunction. this cld also be a problem.
    regards.

  • Expert Hi,
    There wont be problem unless Fork is bent or oil leak is there.The bumpy ride could also be due to wearout or wheel bearings.Hence recommended to observe it for a while and if problem persists go for rechecking of fork and also wheel bearings.

  • The smooth ride issue is directly proportional to the type of petrol you are using. Go for HP (Normal or Power)and fill tires with Nitrogen, i promise this that you will get the best out of Unicorn, like re discovering the soul all over again.

  • Hey Anu
    The solution to this is very simple u cannot get smoothness bcoz while u change the fork oil the air inside the fork while u fit is to be removed and ya once u do it propely ur bike will be dam smooth and will give u a good grip on the road and one more thing to bring to ur notice plz change the oil at 1500kms dont go up to 2500kms and ur engine will give u a good pick up and a good milage 2 hope u get wat i was saying and ya best of luck g8 journey ahead

  • As i understand you have problem with suspension. It could be due to over filling the fork oil. There is a accurate measure which need to be maintained when a fork oil changed. If its more it will not give the required action. Same when is lower than the required quantity or measure. Please have the oil level checked.

  • Hi Ahu,
    Sometimes it happens when service is not done properly.
    Just check fork oil quantity,
    Carburetor tuning and drive chain setting.
    Problem must be solved
