Problem:     Excessive brake dive
Comments / observations:
    "...wallows as well."    
The front fork spring is too soft for you and the damping rates will also be too soft. Dive will also be a problem because of the damping rates and you will need to revalve, both compression and rebound.

When we revalve, we also install a dive control circuit which gives you a fantastic amount of control under brakes with a smooth plush ride without harshness. The rear shock can also be modified with excellent results and we would probably replace the rear spring (we would need to test first) and then revalve to control squat, remove harshness and give good traction feel.

  • Fork Revalve Service Set-up and spring

    This will give you the performance of a cartridge fork with shimstack adjustable damping control, a separate dive control circuit and a superb plush feel.

  • Shock Revalve service and set-up - Shock Spring (If needed)
