View Full Version : Extended fork tubes

05-04-2016, 6:02 PM
I just put extended fork tubes 6 over by Frank's. In on my 83 v45 magma and now when I'm riding it I get a slight banging noise and when I hit a hard bump it's worse I'm not sure what it is I put tubes in once before and never had this problem. The originals worked fine but the 6 over bang any help ? Would be so appreciated. Thanks

My first thought would be either too little fork oil, or if it is the correct amount, too light of a weight fork oil.

Is the noise occurring on compression, or rebound?

Did you put extra reload spacers in there to make up for the extra length?
Did ya put the rebound springs in the wrong spot?
