The itty bitty lil clip that sits in the stock notch of the damper rod about an inch from the top? Nope, it is replaced by the small silver washer in the OP.Is the stock circlip/stopper ring still used mate?
I mean if you wanted me to i can stop by the hardware store where i got the parts and walk next door and pop em in a usps small flat rate package for ya. Shoot me up with a PM.Dude, if you ever consider selling the parts used in this mod as a kit, I'd be interested.
Parts stores around here are for $hit...
So you swapped the fork bits without even taking the front wheel off?I really didn't feel like yanking the forks out and swapping out the oil - so, I didn't. I figured I'd try it with the stock oil and worst case scenario, I'd have to rip it apart again. I unbolted the handlebars, jacked the front end up (jackstands and a 2x4 under the engine), and followed his mod. The whole process start to finish took about an hour.
Shoot me a PM.Can I get a parts kit?
How about an itemized parts list with part numbers from where you got it? Maybe we could find these bits on Amazon or an online parts store. I really want to do this mod also. Thanks for sharing and kudos on the creativity and problem solving.
sweet that'd be great.
AWESOME!!! glad everything worked out for you!Bored today on my day off and remembered this so I figured I'd give it a shot, couldn't hurt my 2.5yr 22k mile old suspension. Picked up everything at ACE hardware thanks to the pic ND4 posted and got everything for $6.63
It now has an amazing amount of rebound, the forks fully extend back after dips or braking. I'm running fresh 10wt oil so it still moves kind of quick but the rebound alone was totally with the $7 and hour is spent installing everything.
Thanks again ND4
