I just got back from my first ride and have to say WOW what a difference revalveing makes, it really transforms this bike. I also chamfered the end of the springs to prevent binding as noted in another suspension mod thread which really helps the back as well.
I am 185 before any gear
front is 2 turns in preload, 40mm sag,
rebound 1/2 turn out full stiff,
oil height left 65mm, right 75mm, belray 10wt.
compression stack is
rear is set to 3 setting frmm full soft, 45mm sag
rebound 12 clicks out from full stiff.
My impressions, front does bounce a little at lower speeds below 35-40, (might lower my oil height to stock level, somehow i got screwed up on heights, most likely why my rebound is so tight). Above those speeds extremely compliant and good feel, harness is almost completely gone out of most sharp bumps, large bumps can be felt but not the bone jarring feel like before. Once i lower my oil height ill get a better feel for if the bouncing is related to my minimal air gap, will likely drop it a little at a time as i have 15 mm difference to make up.
Felt great to ride the bike, it is really transformed. If you have not revalved the fork please do so it is 10 times better than stock even with the slight bouncing.
If you live in the buffalo,NY area I will gladly help you do this mod, i have all the correct tools and it really only takes a little over an hour if you only do the right fork.
