But you may be changing the the height of the forks in the yokes!

I'm sure none of us could notice a difference of 0.01mm

Just been scouting through the older posts.
Thanks for this, I had been wondering about that noise, like the forks are topping out. Torque wrench at the ready for tomorrow.

Thanks Paul.

Thanks for that Maz,

I wondered why it was happening at differing points & not just when applying the brakes.

That really does explain it.

I checked the distance to your Emporium it's only 40 miles from Matlock & pretty cool roads as well.

I'll PM you when I'm coming over to make sure it's ok. Be great to meet you.

This club is excellent.

All the best Paul.

Yep, I concur jazzbutcher, my CR does it wheeling it in and out the garage over a bump without appying the brakes but I never hear it riding lOl
I did check for roughness or excess play but found nothing and listened carefully for the source and rather than crush the head bearings, chose to ignore it.

Mine clunk trying to set the F****n sag on the front end. It's a pain, Got it trail braking into bends without trying to lift the front end & take me across the road. Springs seem really strong. I've only got 1 & 1/2 on the preload & may take it off further & the compression & rebound at standard softest & going softer still. I'm 11 1/2 stone. Still can't get the forks to use more than half of their travel with tie wraps telling me where they are moving to. Is this normal or do people think there's too much oil in them or something? I'm gonna check them anyway tomorrow anyway now I don't have to waste time doing the head gear.
Any info would be great.
Thanks folks. Paul
