70deg OC Fork Shim Consensus?

Are there any quick wins with the stock valve?

If Anyone can point me to a good shim thread for any bike with the WP 48mm OC forks I would appreciate it.

Or, if there are any "standard" shim stacks to try, please let me know. I understand rider weight and such makes a difference - just looking for general advice.

To the RaceTech Gold valves make a good difference, or is a similar result possible with some shim changes?

I'm 220 with gear and have the correct springs.

Also..

I ride gnarly woods stuff with rocks, single tracks, and fire roads. Usually in the CA Sierras. Intermediate ability and speeds. Otherwise I will die.

I wanted to reply to this sooner!

so no I don’t know any stacks for these bikes

BUT I can recommend Shim Restackor: https://www.shimrestackor.com/

And this super educational thread from the DR-Z400 forum on Thumpertalk: https://thumpertalk.com/forums/topic...commendations/

The DR-Z’s valving is very bad - so not comparable to our bikes - BUT the character is somewhat similar. Imo my 570 could do with more high-speed damping without compromising low-speed damping. So the knowledge should transfer very well.

I had always intended to measure the valving in my Husaberg. I’ve yet to get around to it
Thanks from Rainerio

just take shed loads of shims out. on both the MV and the comp stack. float wants to be 0.8mm with supersoft MV springs. the ones they come with are harsh and also MV float is like 1.5mm standard.

you don't want more than 3 x 24 face shims. they give you 6. also the air gap will be good at 115mm.

that's all I want to give away.
