    No good help new dirt jumper 1 harsh topout

    hello i have just got my new dirt jumper 1 2011 (though 2011 bought it new) fork on my bike and first ride i notice harsh top-out even when hoping up on a curb and when compressing the fork myself i notice what sounds like air bubbles running through the circuit tho no harsh topout when full rebound but no fast rebound either would this be due to a low oil level or something broken .. i would hate to bring in a new fork after 1 ride any help would help lol

    rebounds fast with the valve open. rebounds slow with the valve closed. unless i am missing something, it sounds like your fork works normally...

    harsh topouts are pretty normal, but the clank isn't. check your oil heights...

    the dji is a simple ported damper, nothing fancy or complicated in the slightest...

    unscrew your topcaps, compress your fork, remove the springs, measure the height of the oil. it should be 100mm down from the top of the stanchions. its as simple as it sounds and takes about 5 minutes...
