Sachs Shock Goldvalve

Recommended Posts

You have to determine if its kicking from packing up (rebound too stiff) or not.  In my case it was, and my latest stack reflects the changes that corrected it.   If it gets progressively more harsh on repetitive bumps or rocks its likely packing.  Going to extremes on the adjuster will not solve the problem but point you in the right direction.  I have found the shock with the GV is excellent and seems to like the bleed of the adjuster run farther out to work with the comp stack.  The small bleed hole is very little difference, both in feel and in the Restackor model.  With the 5.8 spring, which is stiff for my weight but gives the feel I like, I can hit a 12"-18" log with no kick, so my stack is not too soft for me.

I will compare it with Restackor Monday as I do not have the computer with the app at home. I can say your rebound is stiffer. Again is it packing or too light and kicking?

The reb stack in your buddy's shock is quite non-linear, ramps up very fast when the crossover closes.    That said this is close using the GV piston:

(6)40x.2

30x.1

40x.2

38x.25

36x.25

34x.25

32x.25

30x.3

28x.3

26x.3

24x.3 (clamp)

28x2 (backer)

 

I had another awesome day yesterday, many logs down, no kicking and tracks like magic.  I'm not changing a thing.  Odd that you find it too loose especially with a lighter spring.  What type of bumps and speed are we talking about?

In 3 and 4 gear wopps and brake bumps

And my 5.6 spring gave me 3.5 cm sag 

And when i sitting on the bike 95cm?

It most be closer too 5.7 or 5.8

But that not the first time springs dont have the right value?

 

Thank for the stacks it will get in as soon that i have time

Well as I said a few pages back I focused this setup on rocks, roots, and technical enduro trail at an A pace.  There are no whoops here.  Lost interest in racing sand courses with whoops as they are the same trails year after year and beat to shit.  That said I do get deep into the travel on some logs with no problems.  If your evaluation is correct you apparently need more rebound, so you can try the stack I posted.  As far as the sag, my experience running 95mm was turning was great but the ride and tracking it the rough stuff suffered as the preload was high.  Exactly why I lengthened the shock.  What is your preload to get 95mm race sag?   Try backing off a little for closer to 100 mm as long as front end bite doesn't get worse and see how it feels.
