ok,

I have a DJ3 2004 (130mm) and its quite heavy, someone told me that i could remove 1 spring on 1 leg and compensate with air ? Nad my fork will also feel better ?

Any idea about this because, if i could lighten my bike and have a better feeling fork i would apreciate... I have almost no experience with a air fork (I open and removed springs of a exr pro once)

I would like to have instruction about what to do !

thx

Yup, you could do it, no prob.

Just take one spring out, unscrew the aluminum nut at the top of the leg, (eiter one, it doesn't matter) and remove it, put some more oil in the leg (to compensate the spring volume lack) to raise the oil level approx 1,5 cm, and voila! Put the screw back on, and remember to put a little bit more air into the leg, (it needs it, not having the spring) otherwise, it would get unewual forces on the legs when eorking...

Hope this helps!
