hi guys about 2 weeks ago we had a post about maxton that adjust your forks etc, well i emailed them and asked them and they sent me this back
The forks on the early bike are very different to other forks, they are made in Italy by Marzzochi and instead of having springing and damping in both legs they have a spring in one leg and damping in the other. This system is a very poor idea and the cartridge in the damping leg is also a very basic design, which means there is no way of making the forks work with the original system. We convert the forks so that they have springing and damping in both legs, we do this by machining the forks to take Maxton cartirdges which are adjustable for rebound damping and preload, because the internals are very different we also machine new fork tops. The other problem with the forks is that the bottom bush from new has a large gap in it when fitted to the fork, this causes the oil to leak through and build up pressure on the seals, blowing them when breaking very hard. We machine new bushes as part of the conversion. The conversion costs £360.00, this includes fitting and machining the Maxton cartridges, machining new bushes and fitting springs to suit the riders weight and what they us ethe bike for. ALL PRICES EXCLUDE V.A.T.
The standard rear shock on this model is a sealed unit and very cheap so can not be modified, revalved or serviced . The spring on the unit is a little on the hard side but this suits most people. The problems with the unit are that the damping "goes off" eventually and there is a very poor range of adjustment in the damping, which can not be modified. If you suffer from these problems all we can offer is a replacement unit which is a Maxton unit which is a fully adjustable, high pressure gas unit that adjusts via shim stack system, it has a spring to suit your rider weight and to suit what type of riding you do. The unit also has a remote reservoir unit that has a second compression adjuster. The unit costs £490.00 plus V.A.T.
just thought i would share it with you lot. also he sed if you wanted to ask him any questions to ring him
