Am I missing o-rings on KYB mid/compression valves?

Recommended Posts

Took my KYB forks apart to re-spring and change the fluid when I noticed I'm missing the lower o-ring for the cap and the upper o-ring for the plastic sleeve (see picture). Is this some kind of mod for the valves? I noticed the previous guy had the plastic sleeves drilled to prevent damage, which I've read about. Is removing the o-rings a part of this? I was getting ready to order new o-rings until I saw that BOTH valves had the same o-rings missing. Quick replies appreciated, I'd like to get the forks back on tonight!

So what's the purpose of leaving the o-rings off? What will happen if I put o-rings back on?

They will only add friction
