Do you measure fork oil height with the long tube inserted in the damping rod(with everything collapsed)? I noticed there is a 10mm difference depending on if it's in or out.

And what's the fork oil height range? I'm at 120mm. Is it safe to lower it to 125-130mm?

The damping rod should be removed and while measuring and the fork tube should be collapse. If your looking for a plusher ride and your forks are not bottoming out, lowering the oil height to 130 should be fine.

I've run as low as 80mm. I've been waiting for kaiser shoze to get me, but haven't seen him yet :thumbsup:
