Post by geoff916 » Thu Sep 21, 2017 6:06 pm

Hi
Now I have her running sweet as a nut....I am turning to the suspension.
There are shcrader valves (Tyre thingys) on top of the fork legs.

(I do like hard suspension)

Thanks in advance for any help

I think the general advice these days is not to put any air in the forks. Anything more than a few PSI puts a strain on the fork seals and the air soon escapes unless everything is in perfect condition

If you need to uprate the forks then you should be looking at uprated spring or heavier oil

I use a push bike small pump and through trial and error for the track I am now much more comfortable with 5/6 pumps, no problem with seals leaking.
