Here's a bit of a guide on revalving Af Twin forks. Most people can get forks apart, so will skip that and show the nuts and bolts. Refer to manual for disassembly. I will start with the comp stack. Very important. These damper tubes aren't real strong If you squeeze them in the wrong spot. You only want to clamp them in the area circled above. Between the peen mark in tube, and where the other lighter coloured tube attaches. Clamp anywhere else, you a very likely to squeeze and ruin tube. This pic is the bottom of cartridge. Need to push comp valve in to expose circlip. May need a little tap to push it in. Not to far though. Get the circlip out and pull comp valve out. Will need to screw in the comp clicker bolt to extract. Gently does it. There is a risk the o ring on valve may get damaged on way out. Check it over once extracted. If required, clean up area where circlip sits and the small holes on out side of damper tube. It has been noted else where, not by me, that the thicker o ring used on gold valves can be easily damaged in this area of damper tube. Best to ensure sharp edges are gone. This is the comp stack. Pretty simple. Remove hex head bolt. Hold valve and shims while you do this. Then lay it out and measure up. Take note of how it comes apart. Especially on check plate side. Have look at valve on both sides. They are slightly different. For reference shim ID is 6mm for comp and rebound. The stock comp valving is as follows; 17*0.10,(5) 16*0.10,(2) 15*0.10 14*0.10 13*0.10 12*0.10 11*0.10 10*0.10 9*0.10 8*0.10 This revalve is about my third revision, so I will show and list current stack, as follows; 17*0.10,(9) 16*0.10 15*0.10 14*0.10 13*0.10 12*0.10 11*0.10 10*0.10 Previous stack I used had a few more shims and a cross over, felt ok, but wanted to try this stack. Race Tech like to use 0.15 shims. On paper they are about 3.5 times stiffer than 0.10, so you use less shims. Thinner shims are more tolerant to bending and feel more compliant. Some prep work to the Valve is on order. I use some 800 grit wet and dry sand paper and a piece of plate glass to dress each side of the Valve. Valves aren't dished, won't get into that except to say that dished valves preload shims and create digressive valving. Dress valves until the the face is cleaned up. Sealing surfaces where shims sit will be shiny. Cleanliness is paramount, so clean all parts before reassembly. To reassemble be mindful that valve is different on each side, the check plate side locates on the bolt, and has a spring type washer and check plate that need to move freely on check plate side. Start you comp shim stack biggest shims first all the way down to the smallest. Is a good idea to measure shims that you plan to use. After the last shim in comp stack (in my case, 10*0.10), there is a 0.40mm shim then a larger spacer shim. Put a dab of blue loctite and loosely thread completed shim stack on to the base and spray with contact cleaner again, then blow with compressed air. This way shims are still loose and you can blow air between all of them. When done, nip up gently. 6nm gently. Blue loctite is more than adequate. Red is a bit extreme. Can't stress enough, take time and inspect each part individually as you disassemble and understand how it comes apart. Keep it all nice and clean and don't over tighten bolt. I have been a bit limited on pictures here, (can only get 4 per post), but think I have given enough detail for anyone to understand as they do it. If you go the racetech option, they make it pretty easy with stack selection, but they are rarely bike specific in assembly detail. This stack might work for you,may not either. This is more a guide on how to do the job. Rebound next. Edit, No longer using above comp stack. Have re valves again, gone back to 10wt oil also. 17*0.15,(4) 17*0.10,(2) 10*0.10 16*0.10 12*0.10 9*0.10 Rebound. To remove damper rod, you need to knock the oil locks off and remove circlip. Refer to top pic. Can see groove in the rod where circlip lives and locates oil lock. Be careful not to damage rod. Clamp it in area above oil lock, as this doesn't slide through any thing,(not under normal operation, only disassembly. Still need to becareful), and hit oil lock down with a punch. A couple of good hits will dislodge them. Remove circlip and slide out damper rod. Teknik make oil lock replacements if you want to reinstall them. Cut circlip in half and use rubber grease to locate clips as you assemble oil lock. Makes life easier. https://www.teknikmotorsport.com/af...ttoming-piston-holder-20mm-cartridge-10mm-rod If you don't reinstall oil locks, the damper assemblies still won't hit each other. About 10mm clearance. The inner leg huts fork caps on bottoming, oil locks just try to slow it down. It will bottom harder with out oil locks. Rebound stack disassembled same way as comp. Read above precautions, they are the same for both. Stock rebound, 17x0.10,(3) 16x0.10 15x0.10 8x0.10 This is a wimpy stack. Use database to select stack if you like. Or if using Gold Valve setup, disassembled per these instructions and build stacks to there specs. There isn't much difference between gold valves and stock valve. You could use RT specs on stock valve. I use 10wt oil, so refer to appropriate stack if using RT data. They usually go down 2 stacks to accommodate oil viscosity. Refer to data base for oil heights etc. Re assembly, same precautions as comp, take time, understand how it comes apart, keep it clean. https://advrider.com/f/threads/crf1000l-spring-and-valving-data-base.1363798/ On re assembly, if you follow manual to screw on fork cap to damper rod, you will end up with only 1.5 turns of rebound adjustment. To set rebound needle, screw all the way out, then screw in about 3.5 turns. Screw fork cap on gently until you feel needle just seat. Hold fork cap and nip up the lock nut. Recheck to see if you have the approx 3.5 turns in the rebound adjuster. Be careful tightening lock nut. Nip up firm only. I have read of a guy that snapped threaded end off damper rod from overtightening. Be careful. As for oil height, refer to the data base. All info required, as well as how I do oil height with aftermarket springs. Take time, double check every step. It isn't a hard task, but does require a bit of patience.
