also as i read when i added fork oil i measured with a syringe to ensure accuracy but dumped the 10.4 oz in 2 oz at a time and capped it... i didn't add slowly or pump the forks? could this cause a problem or should i be attempting to re-change the oil or fix this some how?
Could be your problem. you should be pumping the forks after you add the oil, then the final measurment is from the top of the tube, not the total volume added. You might pick up a service manual for a detailed description of the procedure. You can add a spacer, but the OEM progresive rate springs go from too soft to too stiff, no matter how much you weigh. Some use heavier oil but its kind of another band aid for a poor front suspension.
