Apparently, it's a common problem with the VFR1200F too.

Minions from Derby where I bought mine second hand a couple of weeks ago came all the way to my home this morning a 400mile round trip to change my front forks for a new pair because the fork seals were leaking.
I happened to mention a stiff knob on the shock when talking to them last week so they changed that as well how's that for service!
They have been nothing short of brilliant from my first call to them enquiring about the bike up to today.
Cheers Blu

I tried mine last week. It went to the soft setting no problem, but it was very hard to get it back to the firm setting....just like life these days:(
What do you mean it's raining....get ootside and ride the thing.
