the fork fluid looks like a milk shake when you empty the cartridges. lol.
what i did for the vet rider was to add a crossover shim 22.11 after three face shims in mid, then added another 27.11 after it.
i left the bleed holes alone. messed with rebound a bit.
i took out the bleed stack altogether, just used two of the 11.25 for spacing.
next, i used a two-staged base valve. the air pressure ended up at 40, and the fluid height was 220cc in the outer tubes.
the rider was very happy, and it seemed to go in the direction he had hoped, for the off road terrain he used the bike in. we ran clickers at 12c 14r
the bike stayed up in the stroke very well. looking forward to the mx testing with the larger mammal.
i have another rider to do some testing with the earlier yz mv pistons next week. i only drilled one bleed hole in those pistons #56 bit. i want to play with some different float heights and stack tapers.
the next thing i'd like to do is test the psf on a two-smoker. replacing the 05 yamaha forks. (i prefer the 05 shock). i want to try to make a woods weapon out of that bike, but i'd like to see how the two stroke mx would work as well. with the two smokers coming back in competition.
