No Fork Oil??/Questionable Dealer
I apologize for the long set up... 4 weeks ago I took off my front wheel to get a new rim installed after my accident in September. I took the wheel to my local Honda dealer (dealer name shall remain nameless until proven guilty) and after 4 weeks of backordered parts and them lacing the wheel incorrectly the first time, I pick my wheel up on Monday April 8th, put it on my bike (2000 VLX). I take it for a spin around the neighborhood and something isn't right. The front end would shimmy and shake violently. I look at the front wheel and it is moving side to side about an inch. After spending $350 to replace a rim and true the wheel, this is the quality of work I get. I call Honda corporate to report the dealer, Honda tells me to call the dealer etc. long story short the dealer wants me to bring my bike in. They get it on the lift, the guy spins the wheel and we watch it wobble. He assures me that he wouldn't have given me the wheel in that condition (I think he's full of ****). Now they have to lace and true my wheel for the third time. Now my question is, he tells me I don't have any fork fluid. I've had the bike for 2 years and the forks have never leaked and in 2017 the same dealer put a set of tires on for me and they said the forks were fine. The previous and original owner is a close friend of mine and he never had the forks leak. Does fork oil magically disappear or is this dealer trying to screw me since they have to fix my wheel again at no charge?
