Anyone riding it? Looking for impressions.
Have you tried lighter oil in the damper?Slant on my carbine. +, stiffer than my zoke 44 rc3, -, stiffer than my zoke 44, & that's with PSI way under specs.
Like the fork, but compression is kinda harsh for my 150 lbs.
The dampers are sealed, & bushing lube is minimal. Lighter lube there would help?Have you tried lighter oil in the damper?
I'm 140# and normally struggle with all off the shelf fork's damping and springs. I'm interested in the Sweep, but it's the same fork just in 27.5 flavour.
Thanks for any insight, mate!
This is the pic of a Velvet, but still a RL2 damper just as in the Sweep. The cartridge is not sealed and it doesn't look any more complicated.The dampers are sealed, & bushing lube is minimal. Lighter lube there would help?
Well, it would not be accurate but worth a shot. At full extension, I would think that the oil should just cover the compression assembly but I have never serviced one of them. Too much oil and you would not be getting full travel or even hydrolocking!Thanks Warp, Yeah, I knew you were referring to the damper, I haven't broken mine down yet, & was under the impression the dampers were a sealed unit under pressure & not serviceable.
Great photo. wouldn't it be possible to measure the oil removed from the damper upon disassemblely?
Interesting. Maybe the RL2 on the Slant/Slide/Vengeance is different than the RL2 on my Sweep?
Whereas the Velvet makes no mention of sealed, or cartridge.•RL2 Sealed Cartridge damper w/ Mid Valve
•The RL2 damper has rebound damping adjustment and uses an on-off switch for lockout
