Back in the day Jimâ€™s first task was to get a fork or shock to work. There is no point to great valving if the oil can find another way to go. These forks had that problem. Jim had told me how he solved the problem but this was my first chance to do it myself. I have his old notes. There are 4 things you need to do differently from other forks. Two of them are small simple things. One is big and the 4th is just crazy. I did them one at a time so I could see what each did. This meant taking the fork apart four times but good science is worth it.
The photo is of the forks ready to go home because I forgot to take a photo sooner.
