OK, so ive read thru this thread and have 2 or 3 questions. I just put a set of 05-06 forks on my 04.
Seals need changed so i got all the tools needed. fork seal driver and spring compressor.
Got everything apart no problem. I turned the rebound and dampening all the way to soft. Getting that spring compressed is a pain!
I pumped the rods to get all the old oil out and cleaned up everything.
Put everything back together in the order i took it apart. Well except i filled the fork with fluid and pumped the rod up and down a few times to bleed the air out.
I filled up the fork with 18oz of fluid. Installed the fork cap.
Now the forks are super stiff and dont compress. So stiff that when i hit the front brake the bike nose doesn't dive at all and the forks vibrate. ive got all the adjusters turned all the way to soft too.
I think i put them together wrong? Any ideas?
How much fluid does the fork require?/ whats measurement from the top? / is that with the spring in place? / where does the lock nut need to be set at before installing the fork cap?
