Kayaba suspension problem ?

Being the DIY type I decided to replace the seals in the forks on my KLX450.
All appeared to go very well, followed the instructions in the book n all. After fully assembled I have what would be about 20 to 30 mm of freeplay at the top of the stroke where it appears there is no spring tension.
Is this normal or have I completely missed something when I reassembled the forks. ??

Sounds like no preload on the spring , did you have Spares on your reassemble?

na, no parts left over and all assembly went well. What i'm thinking is it may have something to do with the internal chamber and the bleeding of it. Just havent done these before and dont know what to look out for.

Is there an inner smaller tube say 13mm diameter with a thread and a locking nut on it?

This thread should screw all the way into the top cap as far as it will go and then lock it on with the 14/17mm locknut
