    Forks look good guys , i sure did love my Dorado on my Demo 8 .. Was an amazing fork , wonder how this compares to it. I had the bad seal issue , they replaced them right away for me with no questions asked. Customer service was good , no complaints here.

    What I like in the initial post is the fact they didn't want to build it super light and risk parts failing. I like that a lot! More and more companies are trying to make things 'light' and disposable.

    And even then, most forks are in between 6 and 7lbs. You won't feel that extra half pound or so.

    Are you able to service things like bushings yourself?

    The way i read it is DOV has been testing it for over 2 years and haven't had any issues. Is this a correct statement?

    Copy copy... I think some of the others replies were based off the thought it was only tested for 2 weeks with no blown seals. Sounds like a bad as fork, no funds for that kind of an upgrade just yet. Although only ridden about 5 times by me the boxxer race that came on my Jedi seems to be holding up. The previous owner I think had it serviced prior to selling it too. Time will tell the tail!

    My v.2014 is getting a Woodie resized from the v.2013/12/11. Fork will arrive some time next week... I'll update if the Avy is the magic carpet you'd want.

    I would try 80 PSI ....gives the fork a softer feel (more small pump sensitivity) ...that is if you are not bottoming out

    Haven't gotten a chance to ride mine but if it is half as good as the service I recieved from Ronnie at DVO then I will be more than pleased. Had an issue with my fork and they are taking full care of it with no hassle. So far I am a huge fan..
