There are lots of people here that deal with the politics so you can ride though...

I hate politics too, but it's becoming a necessary topic...sorry just my .02

Enough of that shit, lets go ride!

That phillips screw can be replaced with an air bleeder. Removes any air pressure.

I think I may just change oil.I'm not sure how much they take.I did measure what I drained so far.seals are not leaking. The info I received may not be for these forks.think today I will pull springs and see if can get more oil out put in what i measured and see if oil is at 100mm
