Front suspension stiff after shipping
i recently shipping my cbr and when they strapped down the front forks they compressed the suspension quite a bit. i wasnt too worried but when i had the bike uncrated i charged the battery and took the bike for a spin around the lock and to my surprise the bike was very stiff. it ceased to feel like a honda, the turns were very very rough and i almost felt like i was being sucked down. at first i assumed it was just me not riding for 45 days but a friend of mine who also rides a cbr 1000 of the same year took it for a spin and said it did feel very stiff.
what is wrong with my suspension? do i need new fork seals and fluid? does the bike just need time or need to be ridden?
