if anyone has some insight, please share...
on my 2000 ZX7, i rebuilt the forks following the FSM. the only thing that didn't go as planned was that the rebound (on top of inv forks) damping screws will not go in more than 3 or 4 clicks from all the way out. if i run the spring preload in, that will take away from how much the screws will run in.
the manual was followed.. but it just aint right.
and the ride is stiff as hell.
but. at least they dont leak. :)
