    I have no experience of the Splug, so no help there, but I was wondering if you have come across any info on the damper that Fast are working on for the Yari.

    I’ve been looking around at possible options for a damper upgrade on a set of Yari. The Splug has been mentioned on a few searches but I can’t find much in the way of user feedback or opinion. Anybody here with any experience of one?

    the fast damper is vailable now, looks very flash but €80 more than the splug.

    Im also interested in feedback on either

    going to fit a luftkappe in my Yaris and see how they get on

    I don’t see why that Fast plug is more expensive than the Charger in terms of offered functionality.

    I’ve fitted an Splug and the updated air piston (luftkappe equivalent) to a 100mm Reba, but only because it was the only available option. I find the fork much better than it was in terms of initial sensitivity and control, but still not comparable to the BOS Dizzy I used most of the summer.

    ah wondered what the air piston was about- luftkappe is quite a bit cheaper

    fast has independent hi & lo compression over charger? (& novyparts)

    The Novyparts prices include fitting (the default is you send them your fork); the splug + piston kit was 219€ instead of 249.

    Fast has independent mid & lo, high is internal via shims, just like charger & novyparts.

    Im looking at splug, without piston kit as i have a luftkappe, which is €150 + postage which seems reasonable to me

    Ill see how the yari is with just luftkappe 1st (vorsprung steve reckons itll be amazeballs- tho he said it wont be any good with 180mm yaris)

    cheers for clearing up the hi/lo/mid thing

    OK ive ordered my Splug €162.5 posted

    Im fairly happy with the Yari, but trails at pontypool 2 weeks ago with some long DH runs and still not as smooth as my pikes

    £150 worth of uncessary spending or a real improvement (if I can see past my confirmation bias) Ill try and report back  soon

    Well it arrived, swapped oil to 10wt  and popped in the new damper

    initial ride around the block- first off noticed much less braking dive, hopefully get out on sunday and see how it rolls

    Interested to know if this is a worthwhile upgrade.

    Well, got a few rides in and Im very happy, bit less rebound than before and pressure the same,

    its a smoother ride with much less diving.

    Not ridden any big dH runs yet, so cant compare on big stuff, but im very pleased overall

    Bit of a play last night and Im still happy overall, but messing around theres not much change over the full range of compression adjustment

    Id like a bit less HSC, but Im not sure if thats possible without a re-shim, have contacted Novy to find out If I can do that myself or if I have to send it back

    Think I made an error by not stating my details properly on the original order

    Im wondering if the fast damper option may have been better as tehy do a similat thing as well as the posh Yari Up

    Maxime from novy has been offering some advice, he reckons that the LSC dial is all about grip and hard to feel off the trail

    Got a shockwiz on hire from Swinley Bike Hub tomorrow, gonna see if I can get it dialled !
