Bought a used 26" 2011 Lyrik Solo air Mission Control DH in quite good condition as a backup while my other fork is in for service.
Stripped it down, put in new oil seals/dust wipers, fresh oil, lubed up some o-rings. Internals looked solid, stanchions are good.
Now testing it, and I do have some questions:
1.) Recommended psi on the fork: To achieve proper sag, I need to run way more than what is printed on the lowers. way way more. Now at 80 psi instead of 55 psi.
2.) Brake dive. Massive.
3.) HSC/LSC settings don't do a lot. Did follow exact oil levels on the fork, still totally underwhelmed on effect of the compression settings. Rebound works fine.
So, some quick questions:
On the spring side: Does a Pike air cap fit so you can add bottomless tokens?
On the damping side: Any advice on damping other than to retrofit a charger cartridge? How do I identify a broken MC DH HSC/LSC unit?
