I assume youíre sure the forks donít leak. If they are Marzocchi, you can stiffen damping using ATF. If youíre under 80 kilos or just trying to fill with something equivalent to stock, try 7 1/2 w . If youíre a lighter rider or you donít feel like spending for new springs, it will help a lot to use spacers to get your sag in the ballpark. I use pvc because itís cheap, and easy to work with. Some say use conduit or some type thin wall tubing because the pvc takes up space. I say on these forks that is probably not a bad thing to reduce air volume to reduce bottoming out. At 87 kilos I used ATF and quite a bit of pvc to get sag on the low side, so they were a bit stiff but definitely a big improvement for little money.
