    Tuning the -07 demo 7 speedstack motion control Totem

    Hi, I found this in another thread, and thought I might ask here as well, as I havenīt found any info on our custom motion control Totem internals anywhere and hope someone knows how to tune them.

    I run a custom Totem coil with a speedstack motion control damper inside(the one that came on the Demo 7 -07s) The tip above is what I want. Iīm guessing that with those settings and the addition of the internal boxxer high speed shim stack, I should be able to achieve what he says, but with added bottom out/high speed control towards the end of the stroke..?

    Anyone try this, or try to tune this damper in any way?

    Thanks

    Iīm sick with the internals of this fork. Even now that Iīve tuned it and experimented with oil height and other things itīs nowhere near as plush or fast as a Totem Coil mission control. There is almost like thereīs a platform in there.

    Iīm thinking about ordering the motion control damping internals. Right leg should do it, right? Is there something else thatīs different on this totem?

    If that doesnīt work Iīm selling it and getting the new mission control Boxxer. Will also test the BOS N'Dee and Idylle Pro for a swedish mtb magazine this summer so will probably get to try out a fair bit of high end forkage before buying.
