    I have never had a bushing so tight.Does not go in easy either.I have a punch I use that I ground a half moon shape in.Will have the old bushings to use next time.

    The Tech forks were superb at the TN national, and did not leak. At one point I found then just a bit fast, so I dialed in two clicks.

    The cap threads onto the cartridge rod. It seems they threaded it pretty much all the way on before tightening the lock nut, so I did the same. If you can change how far on the cap is threaded on when working on the forks, it will change the damping setting.
