Still working on Travel
Previous mod the washers started giving up from bottoming (pic1)
Removed washers and ground chamfer in lock collar (pic 2) for it to seat up flat against top cap and then bottoming bushing up against it (pic 3)
and made another 1/4" of travel
will switch to just a 1 piece type shock bushing later, so even another 1/4" travel if coil bind doesn't show up
moved circle clip to top hole for rubber bottoming stop to be centered and hold it up (pic 4)
Clip will not be necessary when switching to a 1 piece stop with smaller I.D. / same O.D.
Re checked for coil bind (+1/4" ) still none
Changed out the fork seals so jumped up to max oil level with 10wt just shy of hydrolock (will add a little more spring rate per say)
Lots of back n forth level testing, but lt should be close to 7.1 oz with the new extra 1 1/4" travel
It still to soft, will go up to 15wt maybe even 20wt to avoid having to break the bottom legs loose to add a spacer, may not be room for spacer anyways with 1 1/4" mod
Or thinking about adding a 4" or so spring to the top side of damper section instead of adding more preload to the stock bottom spring with a spacer
Again, May have to with top 1 1/4" mod. I gotta be running out of spring ?
Cheep fix to avoid the doing it the right way with Ohlins kit
And could be done without pulling the forks and would have more travel .
It's not that I'm cheap' I just like the MacGyver stuff .... honest.... no really ....
