Default New to bikes NYC

Hi, just bought my 2008 rsw. It has some custom stuff done to it, im not sure what. Im new to bikes (did dirt bikes when i was a kid). I do have some questions....

Ok, so it seems like my front shocks are leaking. Is that common? Is there a fix? Do i need to be concerned right now?

After 80mph, the bike has drone, is that normal?

I think i want bags, which would you recommend? I have no place to put stuff

Welcome to the family and the best warrior forum.

Sounds like fork seals. I would not ride like that.

Some one will chime in with better info that has done it. I have not had that issue with mine yet.

Ride safe

Im thinking it's gonna be the fork seals too. The biggest concern with that is the oil running down and getting on your front brake. Welcome to the forum

Welcome to the forum and congrats on the Warrior. I don’t know about the front forks but maybe start a new thread with close up pics if after doing some research here still have question.

Welcome from Upstate NY!

As far as the fork leak, I would be concerned about that and would probably get it diagnosed before continuing to ride. I have not had that issue with mine but as Stretch said, start a new thread with some pics and the wealth of knowledge from the forum will get you pointed in the right direction in no time!

welcome to the forum and remember the search function is your friend. also check out the gremlin link in my signature block

get your fork seals replaced and with respect to the drone at 80MPH it could just be wind noise at that speed.
