Just finished re-valving my right fork last night. Big improvement and super glad I did it. I blended my own fork oil to right at 40 cSt at 40C. The combination of the more compliant shim stack and the more viscous oil seems to have hit the happy point where you get better control over low speed fork velocities and softer initial compliance with high speed velocities. Pretty happy overall.
I did get two things wrong initially: 1. be very careful your shims are totally seated when putting the bolt back in to the cone. Mine were off just a hair and it trashed the shims in a 1/4 turn and I had to buy some more and wait for them to come in. And 2. Turn the rebound adjuster the full three turns in before reinstalling the cap onto the damper rod. The manual says allow for 1.5 mm measure from the base of the preload adjuster to the top of the rebound adjuster but its not super clear in its measurement and why you do it.
