have you tried the stock stack?

Yes ,coming from an allmost stock stack (stock shock)

and the difference is huge

i would like it a bit stiffer than stock, but not like this

just bought complete suspension from a faster/bigger kid

complete Kyb a-kit forks in the right color:smirk: (dark brown and dlc)

and 2 shocks

The forks work very good but the shocks are to stiff

it could be that starting out with the stock stack is a better startingpoint for us

Is that what you suggest?

thank

With a STD stack it will feel harder with the rebound separator valve.

34

32

I don't think u will achieve anything like this u need to put 32 under the 34s. Was u trying to use the 34 as a bleed shim. It won't achieve much over 32

i saw a similar thing done somewhere else and put it in there myself

i knew i needed to do something more and just wanted to try it, maybe it will mess it up ??

i see it ,it was wrong to try two different things at once

what i thought i did was to soften the stack in both low and high speed

and yes im a complete novice when it comes to suspension tuning:lol:

the season is ending and we have plenty of time to try different things

thanks again

got the 2 shocks together

the one with the stock comp.stack feels much like the stocker even with the separator nut ,i will leave it like this and we will see how it is on the track

the other shock

34x,2

32x,2

34x,2(3pcs)

24x,2

20x,2

32x,2

30x,2

28x,25

26x,30

24x,30

22x,30

20x,30

feels softer now but still not near the stocker

this is two very different setups and he can get to try both one day at the track and we will see what he says

If i want to stiffen the stock stack a bit overall , what would be my startingpoint

all help is much appreciatred

Remove the 18 clamp shim and it will stiffen the entire stack a bit.
