Well after trying to play around with preload adjuster one side is really tight trying to turn down to ring indentation 5. With small sliver of metal comeing out. Other side is fine! I think it's crossthreaded? Two years ago Dealer fixed leaking fork seals. I bought Lee Parks total control book. I have been adjusting suspension settings! Now I think the preload adjuster will have to be replaced, on one side? Answers Guys thanks.

To service forks, the caps are loosened and spun off the dampening rods. Nothing to maintain there.

Have you tried a light dose of penetrating oil around the preload adjusters? Back them out, clean well and try again? Any more details?
