Drained out the fork oil tonight.

Why is the (facing forward from seat) left fork that much nastier than the right side?

Just wondering . . . .

also, for those that have drained the oil via the bolt in the axle area, the right fork has the longer bolt. Did I lose a brass (or other material) washer? I did not see one there but did on the left side shorter bolt.

The left fork oil is dirty because of the anti dive valve and also it does not have a damper cartridge in like the right side has.

The bolt in the Rt fork is longer than the one in the left fork. If you look up in your right fork you will see the washer stuck up in there.
