Bill, just in case you did not catch my joke, a "sock monkey" in an online discussion forum is slang for someone's extra "profile", so they can post things anon. I think it is a funny term. And thanks for your contribution to suspension threads recently. That KTMTalk thread was a very nice find Also, just in case you didn't follow Zerodog, or didn't peek at the link I posted on the previous page, you need to be careful when changing these specifications. Raising the oil level will indeed firm up the fork, by trading oil spring for air spring, but you will increase the fluid pressure inside the fork, and run the risk of hydraulic lock. Who's to say when that will happen but I don't like the sound of it (probably damages the valves). Or if that doesn't happen you might just blow your fork seals out. I think that would ruin anyone's day.
