thanks for the info - yes, I'm thinking similarly. On the ride home I thought it was way too stiff, and I've wound off pre-load front and back to set the sag. Also wound off damping, compression was too high, rebound about at factory settings. I haven't had a big ride since, but on a short test hop it seemed better, but I have ~60% travel used on front and 90% on the back, so may need to put some more preload back on the rear or add compression damping?? I'll do more reading, I'm more used to cars with no comp damping to play with. Question: when measuring oil level in the forks, does the 'air gap' people refer to here mean the distance from the top of the fork tube to the oil level with the sping installed and the fork fully compressed (fork cap removed so no spring load to fight)?
