    Tweaking a Lefty Max

    I have a lefty max 140. Spring rate is fine for my weight, sag and dampening etc all set up the way I want it. I find that the fork ramps up a little to much howver and I would prefer a more linear feel. Is there anyway to adjust the progresion of the fork, changing oil weight??? I did read somewhere that this may be possible but can't find the thread anywhere.

    What fork is it? TPC, FFD, SPV?

    Progressivity is a function of the spring itself. There is no tuning you can do via oil viscosity, or valving that will have any impact really. You say sag is right, what spring are you running? Steel or Ti, Red, Blue, etc? TPC will allow you to tune the compression a bit for big hit type compression resistance, but it will not help with your issue. I'm thinking you can run the next spring rate down, and increase your preload a bit. Beyond that, it may be a lost cause. Usually folks complain about to little ramp up if anything, so this is a bit unusual.
