Do you guys ever have a hard time getting your Talas forks to extend after dialing them down?

If I go from 90mm to 130mm of travel, I cannot get the fork to extend on its own without either straddling the bike and bouncing the front wheel about 10 times or pushing the fork's arch down while holding the front wheel off the ground (not exactly on-the-fly).

I just noticed the problem, but I'm wondering if it's been like that for long time. The manual states "you may have to pop a wheelie a few times to sufficiently unweight the fork." But, that doesn't seem to work for me. I tried to inflate to 100 psi, and at that pressure the fork extends no problem, but obviously it won't ride very well. :confused:
