Front fork oil replacement service

Any suggestions on who to go to for front fork oil service? I have a 2012 CCT with 22000 miles and never touched the front forks before. Seems like they are acting very stiff, so wondering about getting the oil replaced. Interested in any other experiences from CCT riders.

Live in Shakopee so was going to call Motoprimo. Any other suggestions appreciated. Les

I would give Primo a shot. Otherwise, Brent at the Bison location St. Michael has Victory background as do the folks at Northwway powersports in East Bethel.

If you have the ability to remove the forks yourself and take them in for service, you can save yourself some money on the labor as well.

Last, if their isn't a leak, you may be able to get away with just a fluid swap and not have to replace the seals which is also a cost savings.

I took my Vision to Brad at Mafia Customs last summer for fork seals and fork oil replacement. Great work and a reasonable price. I'd recommend Mafia Customs if you're willing to head out to Watkins.

My personal experience:
Ditto on Brad at Mafia - great guy, great work.

Also great: Northway, Mies.

Empire is also a great independent shop.

MotoPrimo has always had an outstanding sales team including parts and apparel. Moto's service department did have some growing pains, but I think with the addition to Indian, they are going in the right direction.
