rebound range discrepancy on Front Forks

Recommended Posts

I recently changed fork oil on a 03 Honda CR85 expert according to owners manual. I used the standard spec for oil height(102mm) with 5W oil. With the forks re-assembled the full range of rebound I'm able to achieve is 1 1/2 turns whereas the manual states I should have atleast 3 turns. Can anyone help me to understand why I've lost 1 1/2 turns of adjustability? How do I correct this issue? thanks in advance!

the adjustablity all depends on how far you thread the fork caps onto the rod, i cant remember if you need to fully close the adjuster before you thread the caps on or not.

Thanks for your input Mog! I torqued cap against the nut which is set at the bottom according to the manual. Throughout the whole proceedure I did not pay attention to fully close the adjuster before threading the cap.
