The part that made me think it may be fork oil is it does seem to lessen as the day wears on and everything on the bike "heats up". I can definitely feel the difference when my tires are warm vs. cold; it's like night and day. They're not bad when they're cold, but the 777s are just *so* good when they're warmed up.
I'm running a Roadwing and keep the preload between half and three quarters when riding solo. I do check my tire pressure often an run 38 psi
front and 40 psi rear, maybe I should try 40 psi front and 42 psi rear? After all I am a big guy and do have a lot of gear on my bike. I'm just concerned about premature tire wear and squaring off the profile; which only makes it worse.
I tightened the neck bearings last year, but maybe it's time to check them again? It's just such a pain to get it right; the service manual procedure is too lose and I'm concerned about over doing it if I just "go by feel"... And after my fiasco with replacing the neck bearings on my 99, I DO NOT want to go through that again any time soon. ...Anyway, was hoping it was more simple.
