Hi evryone,

new to the forum but been reading for long time now,

have a 2013 lx 150 3v and 5000k on the clock in less than a year =D

the past few days it didnt feel well in strait line and worst in corners,

First though was the tires..

After multible checks andchecking pressure every morning was getting worse,

Did a better check today and i noticed that front suspensio is too soft, can press it with my hands.

Checked all bolts and nuts and are tight.

Also bike lost few cm of height.

No oil leak(is it with oil)?

Appologies for the typing,im on the mobile,

Still have 3yrs warranty though,

Any similar cases?

Thank you all,

Gele

Not heard of a similar case on the new LX, but that sounds like the sort of thing your warranty is there for. Get thee to your dealer.

Have you tried setting the suspension on a different setting? Perhaps a bit stiffer? They come at the lowest setting (i think). Over the past 5k it might have broken in and lost it's stiffness. Dialing it up a notch might help.

Did the dealer say what he thought the problem was? While you are there, could you check out a new scoot to see if it does the same?

There is no pre-load setting on OEM front shocks.

The wrench is to adjust the rear shock.

Thanks. GEVE sorry for the mis info. Spanners are used to adjust shocks. So i thought you could do both. Learn something new everyday.
