That does look low, under heavy braking it will be near the end of its travel, not what you want on a bumpy road.

I can't directly compare mine as its got Ohlins internals but that same distance measures 7" that's a hell of a difference.

Has it been fitted with shorter or softer springs at some time in its life?

I currently have "X" forks on my bike, but still have my stock non X forks. The travel length is different between these forks. I'll measure mine when I get home and let you know. Skiddy, it looks like your forks are the non X type (with sweet internals), and yes they have more travel then the X ones.

This might or might not be somewhat related. I found this when searching for "Stiction" to reply in a PM conversation with @amarzano a few weeks ago. Quite interesting. My Non-X Forks currently with RaceTech Gold Valves do this same thing when performing the same test like in the video.
