Hello

Question to other Maxton owners : did you play with the damping setup or did you keep the factory-delivered setup ?

As I have mounted my Maxton cartridge and drilled the top cap to reach easily the damping setup, I've played a little bit with it.

My cartridge was delivered with a "Max - 1 rev" setup, I changed it to "Max - 3 revs" and it makes a great difference. The fork becomes really soft and even a little bit bouncy. The setup seems to be really reactive...

Let's try "Max - 2 revs"... :)

Hi Vince
I not touched the front fork maxton "max -1" set up as it was such an improved riding experience than the stock. I have had the maxton set up for some 7 months without any issues so forgot about this facility. However, I might have a tinker and wind damping adjuster back/forward to see if there is any more appropriate setting for riding styles.

I do adjust the rear shock and have found it is easy to significantly alter response in a controlled manner so not surprised you have found similar with the front damping.

Although I have the damping facility, I wasn't given any information regarding settings. I have taken it anti-clockwise 1/2 a turn and it improved the already much better than stock scrambler comfort & control I had gained from the Maxton front/Factory M shock rear install.
If anyone was given a spec sheet from Maxton regarding the Max 1,2,3 setup could they post on here please?

just set rebound damping to max-1.5 turns and noticed difference straight away what half a turn makes. As expected, smoother at low speeds on rough ground and a bit lively around bends at speed but all ok. Am fine with either setting so will try -1.25 just for the hell of it.

No I haven't altered mine and have been very pleased but maybe I will have a play with the set up

Hello

You should have a spec sheet with your cartridge giving you the factory setup for damping and spring.

oops, yes just found it stapled to the back of my receipt. Therefore I can confirm that I am riding with the setting Max - 1.25 and it is good

Mine came set at -1 turn which was great on most A/B roads but not as good on the Cumbrian fell roads I often frequent. I have since set it at -1.5 turns which is a great improvement when I'm chasing sheep over the tops. However the front is now a bit softer on fast A roads, but doesn't really bother me too much as I quite like a compliant front. If I did a track day or something similar I would probably put it back to -1 for a while then revert to -1.5.
