    '05 Dropoff Triple questions

    Hey all,

    I managed to get my hands on an OEM '05 Dropoff Triple. As far as I can tell, it's a Jr T with more primitive damping. Any tips n tricks to improve the fork's performance, ie rebound, positive air, etc etc.. Just wondering if anyone out there's tinkered with theirs, especially those who've bought the '05 Stinky.

    I have only set my air presures on my 05 stinky that came with the drop-off tripple.

    right leg i set it at about 50 psi and the left i think is at like 5psi.

    Im about 175 lbs and have the fork angle as high as it would go.

    Its starting to make a clunking noise kinda..not sure if thats cause im riding in 30 degree weather or not though..

    over all its a decent fork.

    cheers

    Drop off Triple's a bit different than the Jr. T

    The main differences are that the Drop off Triple uses a standard QR interface with the wheel (which is an advantage if you don't own a 20mm hub) and has 6" of travel vs. 7" for the Jr. T. Also, the Jr. T uses the SSVF damping system - which you mentioned.

    Sorry, I don't have any experience with this fork to help you out.

    Yep, I stand corrected.

    It would've been helpful if I had read it better. 2005's indeed are coming with 20mm axles.

    As far as to Jr.T. for both 2004 and 2005 it`s all the same apart from the decals. Thus they have SSV damping not SSVF, but still work different to Drop-off Triple.
