- Vorsprung Smashpot – fitted.
Really easy to install as long as you have the correct tools.
Feels very nice so far but only riding outside of my house – maybe need the 40lb spring instead of the 45lb – There is one issue but I’m not sure whether it’s normal or not until I’ve spoke to TF or Vorsprung tomorrow – there is a noticeable topout knock/noise underlight movement of the fork, this is not noticeable once your full weight is on the bike and you are moving. Slowing the rebound to too slow does not remove the noise but full rebound damping does clear it.
Any ideas greatly received 🙂Posted 5 days ago
They don’t visually top out that loud, it’s as loud as my PUSH when I open the damper fully – but at 6 from closed. Fully closing the low speed ports fixes it and finally slows the fork downn, but the setting at 6 from fully closed is crazy fast to me. So IMO, bent high speed rebound shim.Posted 5 days ago
Minus about 100g from the the airspring – which is what my 170mm Fox 36 air shaft weighed. The Spring kit for my ACS3 weighed 400g as well but only added about 300g to the total weight. The extra oil will of course add a bit more.
250g to 450g of extra weight depending on the spring rate sounds about right to me based on my experience with the ACS3.Posted 4 days ago
So, it’s sorted now! Very critical that you do not pre-load the spring at all, just snug the spring collar up to the spring to stop any vertical movement, the spring can move laterally on the collar and spacer but that’s not a problem.
Feels very smooth so far but I’ve only managed a blast round my cul de sac 🙂
Will report again once I’ve been into Wharny.
Think I may need the 40lb spring not the 45lb I ordered.Posted 4 days ago
