You screw in the rebound adjuster 3.5 turns, seat the cap onto the lock nut, back the rebound adjuster all the way off and then torque the nut. Should've had your mechanic read my how-to


Glad you got it sorted.

MacBandit Thatís awesome and good service.

Faster675 oh ... a very small (1.5 mm ?) up and down movement in the rebound damping screw is normal ... mech also verified this on another bike with same forks.

Faster675 again, Thank You !
...
Your assessments of this problem were basically spot on .... Even though I brought my forks to them initially, my mech came by on Sunday, checked my bike, saw that something wasn't right and said he would take it back to his shop, take it apart, and fix it ... which he did ! (no charge)
... again, symptoms were hard forks, and rebound screw limited to seven clicks (when it was 18 or before) .... Turns out, you must tighten (loosen ? ... not sure which way i heard) the rebound damping screw fully before adjusting the lock nut on the rebound damping rod. After the mech did this, forks are fine, eighteen clicks of rebound damping adjustment, and no more stiff forks ... i will re-check all torques, and take her for a test ride soon.

Just to be sure (before i speak with the mech) ... the rebound adjuster screw is not upposed to be able to "move up and down freely" by grabbing it with my fingers and pulling it up and down about an 8th of an inch ? (as shown in the two pics)

Absolutely not

MacBandit The forks need to to come apart so yeah it would be best to remove them. As for damage itís possible if the damping rod lick screw comes off since thatís what it sounds like is not in the correct posistion.

Do not ride the bike. The rod that controls the oil flow inside of the valve is not installed correctly. Remove both forks again and have them look both over, its possible you have internal damage now and that will need to be fixed but you have to have them pulled apart and inspected.

MacBandit I just did a quick glance at the thread. Unless I missed something you got the correct answer. They need to come back apart.
