What do you consider "proper sag"? Are you checking sag in the attack position? How much do you weigh?the_Alaskan said:So I have a 160mm U turn Domain that I have upgraded to a 318. I also swapped the stock med spring with a soft. I now have proper sag and the fork is much more responsive than with the med. spring. However, I also have more brake dive. I also noticed that when the MoCo is cranked all the way firm, the fork doesn't feel exceptionally stiff, but I'm 99% sure that I have enough oil in it.
what I was wanting to know is how would changing the weight of the oil affect the fork's handling? I would like to reduce the amount of brake dive W/O to many adverse affects.
and finally, how "locked out" should the fork be at 10 clicks of MoCo? standing on the pedals and bouncing ( not bunny hopping) on the bike, I still get about 2-3" if travel, that about normal?
Standing on the pedals and bouncing isn't really a very good measure of a fork's performance... basically amounts to "the parking lot test"
