So I was playing with the rebound and compression this morning and I noticed I now only have 4-5 clicks of rebound and I now have 17 clicks of compression adjustment after the rebuild. How many clicks of rebound do you (2nd gen) guys have? The manual says we should have 11 rebound clicks and 12 compression?

I had to move nut in the picture here to be able to pull the internals up. Is this what caused the change? Probably only one way to find out....

Mine are a lot better than they were, but I do occasionally still see a slight oil residue. Other times I see nothing. After reading the Ohlins manual it looks like they actually tell you to put their red grease on the tubes of their forks. I may start doing that and see what happens.

The all balls seals had grease on them and Look good, But I do see residual with my bike sitting. Good to know Im not the only one.

Nice write up garth. The gold bleed tool came from traxxion? (Mine is black from 2006) Just to add in here, is that traxxion has a rebuild how to as well on their site. Just not near as pretty as was shown in here. In reply to the all balls, I have only one track weekend on mine without any signs of seepage.

W.F.O.ing with style will bring life back into focus
