Correct, Dan. My Traxxion spring is 0.6 and the original oil install (which came with it) was 7.5wt Maxima.

Changed my fork seal yesterday, and swapped the oil to 5wt Torco at 105mm. Fork action feels better to me, a little smoother, a little more compliant, while gaining some compression adjustment (I've gone from C=0 to C=2).

But, I'm still blowing through the whole stroke on a two wheel landing. Got to be careful catching air or I'm going to break something. I think its going to be too harsh action for me at 10wt oil. I believe you're correct in that the High Speed circuit needs modification. I'll investigate that option deeper....thanks for the input.

If I were only going to ride roads (paved & dirt), I wouldn't touch it. She's spot on. But, I plan to do so much more. I've already ridden her rougher than I probably should.....especially in stock form.

You may wonder what it is I want from my suspension.....the answer: everything!
