I am trying to find a rebuild how to, which I am sure someone covered somewhere on this site, I am just having trouble finding it.

I am sure it comes as no surprise to anyone that the oem version of unit on 2006-2008 10R does not have the same stiffness settings levels that the aftermarket version one does.

However I am sure someone figured out what they did different in the oem version. :)

Anyone? Thanks! :heyyou:

I believe a few members have sent theirs out to Dan Kyle Racing for modification. Thats where I plan on sending mine over the winter. Just a little :eek:t: but your avatar is sweet.

i think the reason for the low settings is for newbies that dont know, or are not used to having one. keeps people from having it cranked down to thehighest setting, and pulling into a parking lot and falling over cause they cant turn the handlebars. i immediately noticed it was weak, i run mine all the way in, and it still does not offer a lot of damping. the last one i had on my last bike(street and competition top mount) on my gsxr, would tighten to the point you could not turen the bars. may not be the real reason but if you think about it, it makes sense. i do plan on having mine rebuilt.
