- Lyrik Compression upgrade – TTMA
I removed the poplock from my standard mico lyriks, which gets them within a bawhair of the DHs. Free, reasonably simple and reversible- give it a try, nowt to lose. Some folks change around oil after this mod, I didn’t feel any need.
Fitted foam rings (“boxxer mod” some call this) to replace the oil seals at the last service which made a little difference, though in all honesty I couldn’t tell you what was the seals and what was the service. TF sell the bits and also a low-drag seal set which I’m just trying in my Boxxers, but which also work in Lyriks. (my Lyriks get less love than my Boxxers so I’m a wee bit wary of those)
TBH after these wee tweaks I’ve no desire to change them more, they’re mint… One of the few bike components I’m completely happy with.Posted 4 years ago
Cheers Northwind – no poploc on them, hate the things if I’m honest :-).
What I’m trying to improve. This is something I struggle to express, but I sometimes get the feeling I’m a small adjustment away from something special. I think my lack of experience of other forks and suspension isn’t helping me here by way of no frame of reference. I’m going to set some time aside to session a few bits of trail, changing settings and trying to get to grips with what I want/might be lacking, its around the high speed end, but exactly what, I can’t put into words yet. But i get the feeling of slight disconnect.Posted 4 years ago
Maybe I used the wrong term, the difference between the normal Mico and the Mico DH is the lockout/poploc/thingmy that you activate by fannying around with the little compression dial. But even when not engaged its still basically in the oil flow and impacts the fork’s performance a little. So get rid of that, and you’ve got something very much like a DH.Posted 4 years agoI_AcheMember
I have done the DH mod on my Lyriks and it is great.
Here is the video, there is an article somewhere but I cant find it right now.

Well my lovely Meta AM has all its components now, so the next thing is the fork. I got the basic MiCo Coil Lyrik (RC2L), as I wanted coil, and I managed to grab one of the last ones I could see (missed the MiCoDH ones). My original intention was to replace with MiCoDH, but I’m open to suggestions, I know of avalanche cartridges, but in all honesty, don’t think I need that level of pro suspension for my riding, and it involves taking a drill to the lowers, and that’s a bit too much for me… 😐
I’m getting on very well with the forks as they are, still tweaking a bit, i’m not utterly wowed by them but I do like them a lot. Will be buying next month, so this is a what’s out there, real world experience gathering exercise, prior to making a decision.
So thoughts and experiences please, and Mr Loco, if you’re about do you do things down this line? DH internals or an alternative?Posted 4 years ago
