I was thinking yesterday that an automated system would be cool. Not sure how that works. I was thinking it would need to now when the top out spring came into play. Thanks for the link.

The CC fork has many options for controlling bottoming without overloading the outer oil volume. Huck valves for instance. The side-oil load in CCs is there to mainly lube the slide-metals and seals. I always run 330ml in mine and tune the rest of the fork to suit. With Simons seal grease on the main seals, even after 4 hours of S/T they build SFA pressure.

Loading up the side oil will help more with blowing fork seals than anything else.
Hi Pete,

I think I have been clear that the fork has pretty good bottoming resistance for the intended use. It could probably use a touch more, but it is pretty close. I don't know how much oil is in there, it would have been handy for that info to come back with the fork. I will find out.

The huck valves appear to be a good product but involve purchase of parts, complete disassembly for installation etc.

10 mls of oil in each fork costs a few cents and is easily reversed........

The bleeders help so you can pull the bike over on the side stand and get the front up to bleed.
I keep the forks topped out while bleeding the air.

Don't CC forks already have a hydraulic bottom out system (cup and cone)?
If so then what good would mx tech branded huck valves bring to the system that isn't already there?

Yes.

The OEM system is there to prevent the fork being metal-bound on bottoming, it's mainly for the forks good, rather than the rider. It's still a pretty violent bottoming. The Huck Valve is a tunable, staged bottoming system that controls damping in the last 40-50mm of travel. It also lets you run a softer spring/damping combo without the need to build so much bottoming resistance into the main damping curve...so goes the theory.

The jbi pro spring perches are meant to be great aswell similar effect to the Huck valves but only take 30 mins to install. Supposedly allow you to be able to run less oil to get the initial stroke nice and plush but still have controlled bottoming resistance and cheaper than the Huck valves aswell

I agree with Nutty on the Huck valves a very worthy investment. A definite improvement on my ohlins forks. Not cheap though
