Hey guys,
Recently got a pair of used cone valves, they feel amazing compared to the 4cs...but anyways back to the problem. I get a really wierd popping sensation when I come off a steep faced jump. Just curious if anybody else has experienced this, or if you guys have any advice?

Does it feel like fast rebounding, "topping out"?

Do you know how much the preload clickers are at?

So I got this feeling a few times and it was described to me as "topping out". Like if I found a quick bump and tried to use it to hop to anothubg braking bump or tranny.

There wasn't really a cure, could try and slow your rebound down and check to see where your preload clicker is.

I was also informed that the spring inside should be 488mm. Recently FC added 2 spacers on my spring which I feel took up that hair of extra slack and might be why I don't feel it any more...

2 people said not too worry about the feeling because it only happens here and there. Maybe someone else has a more technical reason why this happens?

I felt the same thing in my 48s before I had them serviced I've only done an hit on them since so not sure if it still does it yet. But I have noticed oil leaking from the top of the forks even when left in the garage they seam to weep any one else have this or know why? Photo

I'm guessing the seal where the preload adjusts. Mine weeps but never bothers me. I just wipe it away occasionally

Thanks guys, I took the preload all the way out and went 2 clicks softer on the rebound seemed to get most of it to go away. Do you guys have a special tool to adjust the compression clicker? Seems like a pain in the ass to remove the bars or forks to adjust a clicker!

How close are your bars to the top of the fork? Ive seen some people use something like this from Ride Eng. Ive seen someone just use it as a tool, not mounted to the fork like the KYB.

I use these to adjust my comp clickers. Used the Ride Eng ones in the past, bit of a pain to setup, but work well.

You can just bend a thin flat regular screwdriver and use that to adjust comp. If you are careful adjusting one click at a time is not problem. Adding i just bent it slightly, not 90 degree or anything.
