midvalve or seal head leaking?

1 post in this topic


This past weekend I was riding a track with a lot of 3-4 foot

drop offs. The front end was bottoming really hard. I tried

to increase the compression but the ride was horribly stiff

in the braking bumps. Even when I max'ed the compression,

I was still bottoming on the drops. I heard that a blown

midvalve or leaky seal head could cause this. I tore the

forks apart last night. How can I check the midvalve and

seal head?

Thanks for your help in advance
