I changed the fork oil on my D at 25k miles. The oil inside was completely disgusting, black like used up engine oil.

Absolutely recommend changing it. Would be better for your fork internals, you'd probably see improved handling as well.

It's not a hard job to do if you have a lift, would take maybe an hour.

-Front fender
-Front calipers
-Front tire
-Fork caps

Drain the oil, replace the oil to the proper level. Replace all items in order.

*It's much easier to remove the fork caps if you loosen them while they're on the bike. The fork caps are a little difficult to get back on, as you have to compress the spring, but you can compress, then turn the fork. It's not too hard.
