Thank you Motoman393 and Ego. With your help I was able to take apart my forks this past weekend. I have lots of fun stories to tell you all, but I need some advice first...
You may remember, I've already put the 426 springs in my WR250. Forks .46, Shock 5.2. Now I'm installing the stock 426 vavles.
Here are my shim stacks. I need to know if you all think that this is correct. YZ426 valve piston, 2-stage compression stack.. () = quantity, mm = diameter. Listed in the order installed...
Slow speed stack
High speed stack
Dampening. Mid-valve converted to Check-valve.
I need to know if I have the orders correct. I tried to add a consistant amount of shims to allow the retaining nut to seat flush on the threads.
For the compression stack I tried to use Race Tech's recommendations as to what order to put the shims. On the dampening stack I just tried to use the same order that the stock valves stack had, but added a few more shims to make up the space created by converting the mid-valve.
Do I have it right? Forks are still apart until I can get some kind of confirmation that I have the shim stacks correct.
