We were just texting about valving

Ryan was thinkin

Piston
1.65 x 0.008
1.5 skip
1.35 x 0.010
1.2 x 0.012
1.05 x 0.015
0.900 x 0.015
1.65 x 0.020
.0.900 x .100 spacer
Rate plate washer
Shaft

I was thinking just an 008 straight stack with the flex rate plate.

Either way, I’ll open all bleeds.

Ok, got to playing with valving today.

Rebound was a straight 10 stack, changed that right to a .008 stack.

Compression, there was one bleed opened. Said fuck it, let’s just pull one more out (3 total holes in the piston) and try Turdblows valving idea minus the flexy ratey platey thingy. Went for a drive, better but still stiff. Hit my normal urban valving testing area and suspension is finally starting to move but needs more squishy.

Pulled them back apart, pulled the last bleed plug out and swapped the valving stack for just a full .008 stack minus the 1.5” shim. No flexy rate plate. Slammed it all back on and went for a drive. Waaaaay better. My urban test course says it’s ready for hit dirt and see how it does. May head to a little spot north of me after work to see how it does.

She should be miles better than it was before... this could be bad

Sooooo totally fucking forgot to the .020 1.65 shims from Ryan when i got the rest of my shims...

that said, i can double stack a .008 with a .010 or a .008 with a .012 or so on.

thoughts on if either of those will be close to a single .020? i know its not the same but close would be good enough..... i think
