Just wondering how everyone else's 04 Flick (90-130) rides? Based on my weight (220lbs w/ gear) I installed a xtra-firm spring. After 100+ miles, it is not at all plush. Am I expecting too much. Should I try a firm spring? Is this fork supposed to have any plushness? I've gotten full travel, but in general trail riding the fork doesn't compress much at all. I've played with the compression and rebound with little change between settings. Also, I'm only getting 1/2" or so of sag. My 03 Z1FR 130mm is super plush even with the x-firm springs. Is there any comparison between these two, or am I just dreaming ;)

A friend of mine has one and I can't say that this is a super impressive fork, however, have you played at all with compression adjustment? Manual says this (Flick is TPC dampened):

COMPRESSION DAMPING ADJUSTMENT –
TPC and TPC PLUS
For TPC or TPC Plus forks, a simple turn of the knob located on top of the right
leg is all that is needed to add or decrease compression damping. Turning the
knob clockwise (as you are looking from a rider’s position) increases compression
damping, while turning the knob counterclockwise decreases compression damping.

Compression dampenting slows down the compression.
