Hi all, I’m confused. Recently bought a 2005 V11 Le Mans and found the front suspension rider sag only about 5mm when I sit on the bike in gear. The preload bolts are backed all the way out. The manual doesn’t cover these preload adjustments. Only compression and rebound. Could it be that you are meant to tighten the bolts down as in clockwise to lessen preload? Also the manual says the left fork adjusts the compression with a C on it and the right fork adjusts the rebound with an R on it BUT on my bike both fork heads have an R on them. Does anyone know which is correct?
For me in central Ohio the riding season now, is sporadic and I spend more time on maintaining my bikes and also learning, reading , watching videos to understand more of the mechanical systems that make the machines work as they do. One of the places I'm spending a lot of time ( so my wife says ) is Dave Moss tuning. He's on Youtube, FB all over the place. I haven't signed up for the subscription yet, as I want to learn as much as I can from the free stuff before then. So that hopefully I can comprehend the details that he's talking about. A comprehensive collection of free videos
I am considering upgrading my forks by having Racetech valves installed. Having read through some of the articles posted thought I'd ask the collective wisdom about what is currently available for 43mm Marzocchi's and what should I be considering for spirited road riding but not track caliber. Thanks
