Ja the 4CS forks can benefit from some work - I was fortunate to pick up a Dal Soggio kit that sorted mine out great. Essentially reverse engineered them to open cartridge with C and R on each fork and improved mid flow etc. I am also awaiting a 75Nm spring to use with a Tractive hydraulic preload adjuster I also picked up for a good deal. Looking forward to your feedback on the mods  :thumleft:

After removing my back shock 3 times to set the pre load. I needed a stiffer spring  65nm to a 75nm. I  was offered a Pre load adjuster from TBR suspension. Which i got them to fit to the shock.. This has made life so much easier to set up the shock.

What did the pre load adjuster cost?

I think he said they are normally R4500. He gave it to me for R3700.

True - we get badly shafted with the exchange rate. A nice to have though I must say.

I just closed my eyes and said fit.  Its a lousy job lifting the tank to adjust the pre load. Now so easy.

Hi Ian

Thanks for the explanation. I will have a look at the filter setup. I would be interested in one of those springs when you get them.

Just run some rubber grease as you would on an MX bike around the lip of filter

Yes that helps but there is a design weakness and you really want to remove the R/G filter cage or modify it like I did - so that the lid will sit flush. I cut the wings off that create the problem of the 'lid' not sitting flush. I left small feet that allow the cage to sit snug inside and all then seals 100%. Use Go Pro thumb screws to hold the lid in place - much better than the silly bolts supplied. And yes I always grease a filter rim.

Actually had outage on Monday but since be OK ... holding thumbs.  :imaposer:

The cage is steel and I have thought of 3D printing one but it is working great as is (and is quite light and stays in place no issue).

Nice one Dom, i will do just that!!

I already have the gopro thumb screws. I think you've mentioned that before.

One thing I have found though is the filter housing sits right where the shroud pins are and it makes it quite difficult getting the filter and cage off and on.

Here is the fb thread on the cage mod I did - it also has a video showing the gap that results from the standard cage fitting that can result in dust ingress.
BTW the GoPro thumb screws I found needed shortening a bit after removing the šage wings) as they bottomed out before creating purchase (I am sure a washer may also do the trick but just check so the lid pulls tight.)

I will still like to look at the spring set up for the filter cage. The spring manufacturing chap i know. No longer wants to do it.  Regarding the Go Pro thumb screws ,i screwed on a m5 nut to take up the longer thread. That worked well. However i have now found some m5x30 long grub screws . I fitted those, then turned some long nuts to fit . Now the foam and outer housing just locates onto the studs. A bit easier to install. IMO

At the weekend i removed the in tank filter and fitted a link pipe. Not such a bad job. I also fitted a Golan connector filter. From LocoMoto.  Now i have piece of mind the pump wont over work with dirty old filter. I will clean the Golan more frequently.

So i rode my bike over the weekend and it performed well with the Golan filter and removing the in tank filter. But i am scared the Golan filter area is a bit small so have decided to re fit a in tank filter. I found these from Midas for R25. It matches  what came out. From a dealer in Cape town.  It is a high pressure 10 micron filter. The clamp sizes for the in tank filter are 9mm to 11mm.

I also decided to see what's going on inside the Akro DB killer. I found the bike to be what i thought a bit choked up in the exhaust department. So drilled the carbon end cap . I then used a good 8M socket and turned the bolt out. It was lightly welded. But came out. I started the bike without the DB killer, Its way to loud. So i cut off the 2 pipes and replaced the end cap. Now to me its perfect.
