Yo, back from the dead. Haven't done much with my Hyper since I was away last year traveling (did a tour of Vietnam on a bike, also really cool). Either way. The forks on my Hyper started leaking, severely. I asked the company that did it what specs they used and they told me they used a Wilbers 7.5W oil with 90mm air gap. Now I always did find the front a bit on the rough side and with the forks leaking it become softer and actually felt a bit better to me. The bike would dive a bit more during braking and use more travel compared to previously (before it would maybe use 2/3 travel, after the leak 3/4) so I've let my mechanic know to use a 100~105mm air gap, whichever he prefers, to see whether that will soften the ride up a bit.
Will let you guys know how it went.
