Rebound Rod (no rebound)

Recommended Posts

Well put in new springs in forks today(OC 2009 ktm 400xcw)..as well as changed oil.

First leg went fine... second leg I thought went fine but when reassembled the rebound is not working.. not the spinning forever clickers so many have.. it has 35 clicks it just has no effect from fully closed to fully open.. no rebound..just springing back.

anyway, I suspect is has to do with the way the top cap is threaded to the rebound rod..maybe not fully compressing the oring inside the cap?

So I have 2 questions..

1) what do you hold the rebound rod with when installing the top cap without destroying the threads?

2) and what would give my 35 clicks but no dampening effect?

Also forgot to add.. my preload adjusters, 24mm are totally frozen..tried to loosen them but they just loosened the fork cap.... tried to tighten but didnt want to exert too much force..

Thanks for you time:) hopefully someone has some insights!
