Can somebody give me any general instructions for making this fork more trail worthy? Right now it's harsh and hardly ever goes past half travel. I am familiar with cartridge design but Race-Tech says that this fork has a mid-valve that must be converted to a standard check valve. Anybody know anything about this?
Also...any pointers on disassembly would be very much apreciated.
Thanks- Greg

I would worry more about doing a service & rebuild to be sure bushings are good. Then check to make sure that you have the right springs and oil height. Also check to make sure your R/S fork leg is NOT bound up. These 43mm KYB's should work pretty good.
