Helas to Greece!

Its a bit strange how you listed your BV.

I guess you mixed the BV and the bleedstack.

I cant figure out what is what at the moment...

You've found the 24 directly to the piston face. Which shims follow these 24?

Then there should be a thick washer and another stack. this stack is the so called bleed stack.

So I guess your BV stack is:

18x0.10

20x0.10

22x0.10

24x0.10(8)

And your bleed stack

16x0.10

14x0.10

11x0.10

But if it was mounted in the direction you posted it here, someone inverted the bleedstack.

If you're not sure post a picture of the disassembled base with all parts.

How felt the bike with the stack you listed in your first post?

There should be almost no compression damping.

the bike was way too soft for me...when i was hitting the brakes it was like the bars gonna touch the ground:bonk:,so first step stiffer spring i am going with cardinale199 advise and go now to 0.47-0.48 and the revalve advise...but i want and a second opinion to think about it

There is not much thinking necessary.

Your current stack is really crapy. No one who is in suspension would do a stack like this.

Test the stack of cardinale199 and go for it.

If you dont like it one can make other suggestions.

Lucky you to get a precise stack this fast anyway.

For supermoto, like Cardinale said, jacking the rebound damping way up will make that bike feel allot better.

i think you can try another 27x0.10 in mid and this less the float

and on reb add

2x 27x0.10

1x 26x0.10

1x 24x0.10

new oil and try the bike
