Like so many others on this site, I installed a set of Ricor Intiminators last year. Generally positive results over bumpy, patched asphalt, though like some others, my front forks now trend to hunt up and down slightly on very smooth roads. Distracting, because it feels like a slightly out-of-balance wheel. Brian from Ricor suggested drilling a bleed hole .050" directly through the center of the bolt in the Intiminator.
However, someone else on the forum made a good point. Not all the Intiminator equipped bikes are exhibiting the hunting problem.
I was going to use the survey format for this, but couldn't seem to find it (??)
Anyway, here's the questions. I'd really appreciate seeing this info from anyone who has experience with the Ricors on their Bonnies/Thrux/Scram. I don't want to drill bleed holes in the Intiminators if there's another solution.
1. Does your bike exhibit the hunting symptom on smooth pavement? (Y/N)
2. Do you run the factory recommended fork oil level? (Y/N) If not, elaborate.
3. Do you run the Ricor recommended fork oil weight (Amsoil 5w)? (Y/N) If not, elaborate
4. Do you run the original equipment fork spring with the Intiminator (Y/N) If not, elaborate
