Somewhere in the upper 2/3rds of all settings was very near for me..13st rider..fast road.
Familiarise yourself with the adjusters and how they feel (count clicks) on the bench.
Take notes of your initial test setting and only alter one parameter at a time until you find what suits.
Legion are the tales of woe from those who twiddle all the adjustment at once and pogo stick into the scenery at the first fast bend.
DO NOT force any of the screw adjustments once mounted...You have been warned.
Problem is .....you will want to upgrade the front forks next.
According to the 2CO Manual:
1 - Softest
4 - Standard
9 - Hardest
First turn the adjuster fully clockwise, then:
20 Clicks Anti Clockwise - Softest
10 Clicks Anti Clockwise - Standard
3 Clicks Anti Clockwise - Hardest
Compression Damping - FAST
Again, turn the adjuster fully clockwise, then:
16 Clicks Anti Clockwise - Softest
7 Clicks Anti Clockwise - Standard
1 Click Anti Clockwise - Hardest
Compression Damping - SLOW
Turn the adjuster fully clockwise, then:
24 Clicks Anti Clockwise - Softest
15 Clicks Anti Clockwise - Standard
1 Click Antic Clockwise - Hardest
You are so right willandrip!!!! It seems a shame to have upgraded the rear and not do anything to the front end! (Even though there was nothing *wrong* with it to start with).
What are the options for the front end? It looks like you've gone with shortened springs - what make are they and where did you get the spacer?
