    2:12 Are you sure that "more clicks" counterclockwise give stiffer forks? KTM manual for example says 18 clicks – Comfort, 15 – Standart and 12 – Sport. I presume sport means stiffer. The same on 5:00 fo the rear shock.

    What is the Brand of the Newton meter/inch lbs. mini torque wrench that your using? Looking at Park tools, but doent look the same. Thnx

    Question – 2:09 in the video you say more clicks = stiffer. If you're bottoming out (going clockwise) to start, then counting clicks out, aren't you reducing compression with each click out (counter-clockwise), or the more clicks, the LESS compression? Reducing compression should make it LESS stiff? All the way in (clockwise) is closing the orifice, basically blocking the fluid movement to the max, which would be the max amount of compression. Or are the settings on the SFF fork backwards from most forks?

    I was a fanatic about my suspension and brakes……any motor has more than enough power……if you can learn how to really dial in suspension for your tracks it makes pretty big difference….I wrote down all settings I used for each specific track and condition ( if rough, avg or smooth that day)

    Very help-full I have a 2015 Husky FE 501, riding in the PNW and racing in NMA hare scrambles/off road and I find my forks pushing me off the trail, I’ve messed with the top clickers only, I’m going to raise the fork a bit to see if the bike turns tighter.
