I've been more and more disappointed with my forks lately, as I ride my 99 LC4 more and more. I put in heavier springs (that helped), for a while I ran ATF for fork oil, now I've switched back to Maxima 5w oil, and the lack of damping is really bugging me. So I'm going to try to do something about it. Low speed damping seems particularly lacking- when I'm in a turn on the pavement, the front end will sink by an inch or more even while I'm on the gas turning in. Small pavement seems will use up a couple inches of travel- very disturbing while cornering. I haven't been able to find any obvious problems with the parts or assembly of the forks, so I think I'll start playing with the shims. First- here's where I am: <a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/gM2XeHMgUmKPt7BkAPgnqu4BpFZPVMsAsIdfA-OyIm8?feat=embedwebsite"><img src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-2l2ke_xrzL8/TmUwWC4lpdI/AAAAAAAAESA/D2_zTaKcHEg/s640/IMG_20110905_115110.jpg" height="478" width="640" /></a> If I'm measuring the midvalve float correctly, I'm getting about 1.60mm of float with the stock stack of 4 (8mm x 24mm x 0.1mm) shims. Everything I read (on thumpertalk and ktmtalk suspension forums) recommends having the float at 1mm and below. Seems like all that float means I have almost no low speed compression damping. Is there any reason not to tighten it up to .8-1.0mm?
