    Husaberg floating shim

    Adammotor, the floating rebound shim on the secondary piston is common since a few years now. Wp probably think that it gives enough damping. Earlir years do have a light rebound stack.

    Kurt, i believe that these years have a third bushing. Are these dlc coated legs? OC fork? Or CC? 14mm pusher rod inside, 28mm midvalve/cartridge. Not too bad a fork when you have the dark coated legs. You can make them very good. I know, since i have a set on my 2008 bike. Put a new set of skf seals on thm, and maybe replave the bushes.
  3. Guys, on the throttle my rear rebound is very good, off the throttle it is less predictable. I guess it is normall behaviour? The throttle helps the suspension, but is this issue rebound or more compression related.

    Realy good valving basic info.

    absolutely very informative. A must read pdf
  5. Can i give my opinion here? I like reading about suspensions, although i skip over all the: who do i use topics and all other recommendation topics. I make up my mind and read between the lines. Dave is on here a lot....... and normally i like his way of explaining how he thinks about suspension, but now and than i don't like his aggressiveness towards other members. He uses this board as an add. That can provoke others to comment. Active-ride is one of the suspension guru's that don't have an own marketing concept(correct me if i am wrong) like Dave has with his dell taco's, Like Race-tech's Gold valves concept, that needs protection. That is a different view. Ok, carry on..... and they all lived happily....

    2008 530 EXC stock shim stacks

    check yr caliper. it is out of whack by a 0,01mm, these are all 0,10mm shims.

    Fork bending

    Just nice info. i did not know that. Never heard anything on here about this amount of flex. 70mm is so much, maybe this guy exaggerates it a little, or ... is he for real? I am a hobby rider that gets away with 48mm legs:thumbsup:

    Fork bending

    Bump..... incredible... 70mm flex.
  9. An other trick is measure were your forks stay when riding flat terrain. Have a look at your forkleg protector. Keep in mind that you have to ride it with a half full tank to get the best estimate. At a certain point on the protector i know what my sag is. I ride at aprox 70mm. The measuring device for fork springs can be done by putting weight on the spring and measure the difference when increasing the weight. A weight of a lifterweight is nice.

    shock rebound speed

    You want to run yr rebound-clickers as close as possible. Close the clickers by 10, loose one faceshim.

    shock rebound speed

    Very interesting setup indeed. Question is, what how does it compare with a rebound-setup that has less lowspeed shims and closed clickers settings?

    shock rebound speed

    well, kawamaha, i scrolled tru yr latest messages and cld not see any news about yr idea to this set-up. What were yr thoughts trying this set-up? Yr rebound stack is like this: 1x faceshim 1x26.1 crossover the rest of the faceshims? an other crossover? tapered stack

    ATF/Diesel fuel mix for suspension?

    Come on guys, not so conservative. Dave's been mixing his stuff and came up with something decent, so they say.

    ATF/Diesel fuel mix for suspension?

    Does it mix? Well, as long as you keep the same oil for a longer time it cld work. Offcourse you have no idea of what vi you are running, or do you have the specs sheets available?
