I've recently acquired a DT EXC 150 suspension fork for my Mojo SL, it appears to be very good in most respects but I feel I'm not getting the maximum out of the performance envelope.
I've ridden quite a few forks but never owned one with compression and rebound adjust. I'm around 100 - 103kg (220-230lbs), I'm running the fork at 115PSI. I've played around with numerous permutations of the blue compression adjuster under the fork leg and the red adjuster on the top for rebound but it never feels quite right. Also unsure if the black threshold adjuster wheel plays a major role as well in active suspension dynamic (which i dont think it does, just lock-down breakaway), so I've not done much with it.
I wondered if anyone had a methodology for setup as I feel like I'm chasing the error and unsure if i've got one of the the 3 paraemters sorted before I move onto the next, i.e. set pressure, fiddle with compression and rebound but was the pressure right in the first place! If anyone has any expereince on how to logically set it up I'd appreciate the help, especially which part to do first and how to assess the parameter before moving onto the next. I tend to like my forks quite smooth and I understand they'll dive if it's too soft but I would tend towards this rather than being uncompliant and too stiff. I know this is pretty subjective and can be a black art at times but any tips or thoughts very welcome.
