    Rebound fast too: Maverick fork sc 32

    Everyone knows the problem of maverick fork: little rebound adjustment; all open or all closed, is the same thing! Nothing changes!!!
    It is preferable to use more or less volume of oil, or more or less oil density?
    Thank you

    I run the SC32 on my ML7 and had a similar issue many years ago. I tried going to a heavier weight oil with no change so I completely disassembled the damper tube and found that there was an o-ring that had gotten chewed up and was blocking the oil port. After cleaning and installing a new o-ring the rebound adjustment was noticeable and my lock-down action worked better. Yes, the adjustment range is short compared to other brands, but for me it is a very usable range.

    On a side note, two years ago I had Ethan add an IFP and do a custom tune on the shim stack and the difference that made is incredible. I don't recall what weight oil he used, but my fork still runs great to this day - super supple on small bumps, very controlled low speed compression (thanks to the IFP) with almost no brake dive, and enough progression to take the occasional big hit. He could probably give you some good advice to get you headed in the right direction. You can reach him at ethan@mavericksuspension.com.

    I hate to lose my climb mode, but I honestly don't use it all that much. And if the overall performance is improved maybe that is a good trade-off.

    Let's keep this thread alive and if anyone has done the upgrade please give us a report.

    any pics? description? but I use lock too often to sacrifice it. maybe IFP would help, but with full duc's 150mm there can be problem to set it properly, as I read before.

    I have the reworked rebound on my SC 32. I rarely used the climb mode so I didn't miss that much. The range of rebound is DRAMATICALLY wider, from virtually no damping to so much that it's almost locked out. I was able to set the rebound where I like it, which was outside of the range available before. I'd recommend this upgrade to anybody who needs more range in rebound damping and can do without the Climb-it function.

    I advise you to process the internal damper. IFP is fantastic, new shim stak, new piston, and new seal! Incredibly, the fork changes!!!

    Simone,
    New seal head is the same as the old one but cut on its length + thick plastic spacer to replace cutter aluminium. Then the green knob is no more locking the travel but add a full rebound control with low to strong effect. Simple !!!

    In addition you can remove the damper piston (black) Oring to reduce friction ...
