Just bought 2013 KX450F

It has the new Air supported front forks.. and they seem really soft. Not sitting on the bike, the front forks will drop 2 inches.. and the squeek. I noticed this after the first 20 minute break-in Ride. Have not ridden it a second time yet. Anybody familiar with the new Air suspension?

Yes they take a bit of setting up, use it till the seals wear/leak then replace with 'low stiction seals', but check your pressure is balanced, got seals for mine from Pyramid Parts and they come with fitting instructions (proper Kawasaki KX450 ones), seemed to help mine. I'm on their mailing list and they are doing a 25% deal at the moment (not sure till when) Kawasaki KX450F Special Offer | Pyramid Parts Australia

Good luck!
