MiCo damper on Lyriks
My Mission Control DH I find I have it two thirds towards ‘hard’ on both high and low most of the time. If I run something very flat and hard, then I’ll set it to hard. Also find it jumps a bit better when firmer.
Aside from that for ages I didn’t really tell much difference what I set it to, other than if I go below half way towards soft it does seem too wallowy. There is a difference, but I don’t really mess with it most of the time. Originally I had it set in the middle then made it a bit harder for jumps and stuff. I’ve no idea what it really should be, put it’s lovely and plush where I have it now.
Mine’s an air fork though, and fixed travel at 170.
Oh and rebound – again I don’t really mess. It just always seemed set up right for me. I’ve played around on another fork and found it doesn’t make a great deal of difference until you set it way towards slow and then it’s obvious it’s way too slow. My old Recons forks do make a bit of a noise if set slow. The Lyriks don’t make the horible noises the Recons did though.Posted 4 years ago
Just got a set of Lyriks. The previous owner had TF fit a coil u-turn and MiCo DH about 18 months ago. I took them out first time today, and I really can’t tell the difference between full-on and full-off on both the high speed and low speed compression. Also the rebound doesn’t seem to have any effect – on my old Pikes, it was very sensitive and you got a ‘breathing’ noise when the rebound was set high, presumably oil rushing through the damper itself. When on full the forks took an age to fully rebound; on these Lyriks there’s little if any difference.
As none of these things seem to be working, might it just be lack of oil in the right leg? Condition of the forks is very good so I can’t/don’t want to believe there’s actually anything wrong with them.

I found this doc by SRAM good as a starting point for setting up my Lyriks…
