Question Intiminators

I remember reading about the Intiminators being noisy on some installs. I installed mine yesterday and I'm getting the same noise complained about by others. Can anyone tell me what the remedy for the noise was or if it's just normal? I did a serach and read through a few pages but I can't find where anyone found a solution to it.

On another note, I sent my rear shock to Jesse at Keintech to get revalved and resprung and the difference is amazing. Between that and the heavier springs and Intiminators in the front I'me very pleased. Now if I could only figure out where the noise is coming from?????

WTB: WA street legal light DS > $2500 (Seattle)

Looking for a light bike for trails; something that will get me to trails over 30-50 miles o' road.

I don't want a fixer. I want a rider. Please pm me if you have/know of an appropriate bike.

I'm on a tight budget of $2500. I saw and LOVED Transalp's KTM 380 EXC but couldn't quite reach his price (thanks for stopping and showing me though!).

Andy

They are noisy, get used to it. I think they all make noise. Some people must just have bad hearing and can't hear it. Or they don't want to hear it after spending the money and time on the install. Mine have made noise from day one. I just had the forks completely apart to change fork seals and they still sound the same. I also mixed up some 7.5 weight fork oil to slow down the rebound. I haven't rode it yet to see what kind of difference it made. I was loading my CRF450X yesterday and pushed down on the forks, so smooth and no noise at all.

Thanks Ed! So I take it you didn't notice any damage when you took your forks apart? I guess I'll just live with it. I just wish I would have upgraded my suspension earlier. I have a newfound love for my DR!

FS: old DR 100 and 2000 YZ250

SOLDThe DR has no title,but had one sometime in the dim past, cause it has some old ORV stickers. $250 takes it. Better hurry, it's on CL too.SOLD

The YZ runs like a raped ape. Has pretty new tires. It's 9 years old, so don't expect some garage queen. No, it was not mine, so all of you that are worried I rode the dogsnot out of it can clam up. Unless it goes more than a week or 2, then I WILL ride the dogsnot out of it.
PM me for info

Nope, no damage. I don't know what it is about them that makes noise but there wasn't any wear that I could see.
