Last time I went out on the Fantic Heath commented that the back end was skipping rather than tracking. So best thing to do would be to service the rear shocks.
The Fantic has the original Marzocchis on it. No idea when or if they have ever been serviced.
Getting the springs off was a faff. Much cable ties and swearing later-
The shocks actually had a lot of oil in them, all be it a nasty brown colour.
Fully stripped:-
The seals looked ok so I cleaned out the tubes and refilled with ATF. All back together:-
And back on the bike:-
See how they feel next time out. Now to mod the rear brake pedal so I can find it when I need it.
