Especially after a good cleansing when there is no visual signs of a spil, I found it hard to detect problems with oil leaks/levels. Usually I can feel low levels in a rear mono suspension when driving it. But front suspension is very hard.

Any tips on this?

  • Can you clarify what exactly you're asking? From "mono suspension" I'm guessing you're talking about a motorcycle. By "leaks" do you mean fork oil leaking from seals (or elsewhere), or air leaking from a combination oil/air-pressurized shock such as found on Honda Prolink bikes? Jul 10 '13 at 1:47
  • I am referring to oil leaks on motorcycle.

  • If you provide your make/model/year various motorcycles have different ways of adjusting stiffness in the front end. Jan 8 '16 at 16:11

If there is no visible leak but the suspension still feels hard, it sounds like your motorcycle's suspension is not properly calibrated to your weight.
