    My 2007 Road King Bottoms out on big bumps,,, last year i had the fallaway check and adjusted,, but now when i go over big bumps it hits hard,, i rode my friends street glide, and it rides so much better then mine over big bumps.

    i dont know if they need the oil change in the front forks, i have no idea but it drives me nuts

    please help!

    Thank You!!!

    I had the same BANG hitting bumps and I went to a heavier fork oil and it stopped it. The factory oil is a 5 wt fish oil and I went to a 10 wt. The 15 wt SE oil will do it too but it rides a bit stiff then.

    BTW, It's not actually bottoming out but to me it's more like a hydraulic lock from the sudden compression.
