    Loose Lefty Max...?


    I have just purchased a new 04 Jekyll 1000 and suspect something is wrong...

    When I lift the bike by the handlebars and drop the front wheel to the ground there is a clonking sound coming from the top of the Lefty Max... If I wiggle the red damping adjuster (without rider), there is quite a lot of side to side play. It would appear that the Lefty Max has around 3mm freeplay (loose)... is this correct? If not how do I adjust it?

    Many Thanks

    Sounds to me like that top collar is not threaded down tight. I'm talking about the aluminum piece that surrounds the rebound dial with both wrench flats and pin spanner holes in it. Before you go cranking down on it though, I suggest you let the dealer remove it first to see if the threads are O.K.. If they are damaged it will certainly be warranteed.
