Ok give us a call and mention that your having the issue again, ask for ronnie and talk to him and see what he says.

So when I go to check sag and I get on bike and get into attack position like how I’d ride on the trail and the fork doesn’t want to compress because of friction, what is going on exactly that causes that?

If the fork has been around the block, new seals/ oil and a general service should take that stiction off the top end. I had the same issue at one point.

Started using a DVO Diamond D1 recently.
Impressive stuff, but i am having issues with the OTT!!

I'm 63kg fat only and needs only about 90psi and 2 rounds of OTT to get the fork fully extended.
After a good trail ride, i noticed that my OTT changed from 2 full rounds to 4.5 rounds, and can feel that the fork sinks into its travel too fast!

Anyone has this issue?
Is my OTT broken?



P.S. I always deflate the fork before adjusting the OTT.

you need around 100-110 psi because at 63kg you should be at 100 psi but riding weight would put you around 110 psi and do 3 rotations of ott

100PSI? That much? I'm already getting loads of support from 90PSI.

Are you also basing this suggestion from the setup guide below?

Even the chart says 100psi

Rider Weight Air Pressure
120-139lbs | 54-63kg 90-100psi
You are 139lbs or 63kg and the chart say 100psi that 90psi would only apply if you weighed 120lbs or 54kg but you are not accounting for your riding weight, all your gear helmet gloves tools camelback thats why i said 110 psi unless you ride your bike in the Nude.

That makes sense! Let me give 100Psi a try!

Just opened up the box on my fresh Diamond and discovered an issue with the high speed dial. It doesn't click and it takes some serious force to move. The other thread I found asking about this directed me to here. Is there an easy fix for this?
