Fork Oil Changed

Forks were really choppy, especially on the dirt, so I changed the fork oil.  I used ATF (Automatic Transmission Fluid) because it’s cheap and plentiful.  It’s important to get the levels right so I set them to roughly 146mm, which I think is correct for the later Tiger.  TOP TIP: you can use your motor oil dipstick to get the level right.

With the luggage on, and a bit of ballast, the bike will sit back when you remove the weight of the front wheel so there’s no need to prop it up.  Bucket isn’t doing anything.
