Mid-valve is:

Nut
Washer
12.10
16.10
18.10
16.10
20.14
21.20
21.12 x 7
Piston
16.10
22.07 x 3
18.07
16.07
14.07
12.03
16.10
22.40

Float was 0.4mm roughly.

After reading up on TT, I have pulled 1 x 21.12 (R) & 1 x 22.07 (C) to see if that softens up the valving a tad in our rocky terrain. A lot of punters have had success with this small re-valve for bush riding.

Iím new to re-valving, so am going slowly & 1 change at a time.

That's 2 changes (both C & R) and if you haven't replaced the shims you've removed with smaller diameter shims at the clamping shim end of the stack you will have increased the float you have wouldn't you? That certainly WOULD make it more plush... possibly MUCH more plush!

Also, are you sure you've measured those thicknesses correctly. I thought shims came in standard thicknesses of 0.10, 0.15, etc. thicknesses.

Just following what a few people have done on TT for plusher rock & woods riding, Arctra.

Understand re float - will have to test damping properly in the bush, but action felt good jumping off & smashing into kerbs this arvo.

..aaand I did a super-early solo test ride this morning at the G. The fork is better but still too stiff for my application. Fiddling with valving is a waste of time until I get the right springs in - I know that, but couldnít help myself


I have some 4.4 N/mm springs coming.

Correct 0.44 springs in & the fork is, of course, heaps better. Had a 3hr test ride/marking session this morning.

A softening of the valving in the mid has helped, too. Small, loose rocks on the trail at 3rd/4th gear medium speeds are not noticeable now.

The bike is more planted & steers better. Basically, the whole ergos/suspension/tyres/power matrix is really suiting my style & terrain. Stoked.

Iím 92kg onboard - Silkolene 5wt @ 350ml, running the fork 9mm up in the triple, Comp - 12, Rebound - 12.

Finally, I canít notice any difference in front brake power whatsoever with a stock Yamaha 250mm rotor, either. Maybe the improved front end traction is influencing this?
