no variation in rebound (Marzocchi Shiver 45)

Recommended Posts

I have a 2006 GG 250 Marzocchi fork

my weight 85 kg without gear

my Fork specs:

130mm air

4,5N/mm2 spring

6mm preload

SAE 5 oil

Rebound stack:

21 x 0,1

21 x 0,1

19 x 0,1

19 x 0,1

18 x 0,1

17 x 0,1

15 x 0,1

when I open or close the rebound screw full I don't feel a difference

What is the reason?

Is the thin oil bleed to much beside the first shims.

Is a 22x0.1 Shim better - I want continue to use the SAE5 oil.

Another problem is the fork feels a little bit uptight on the first 3cm.

But the forks are parallel and the srews have right torque.

Why?

If you refer to the 5W oil this was also a problem.🙂

But I read that the the SAE weight system has a very broad and vague viscosity range and does not even cover the viscosity range that most quality motorcycle suspension systems require.
