Very plush right out of the boks(my eks key stopped working). The adjustment nobs make a real difference when you use them. It doesn't fleks(eks key). Not too heavy. Looks cool.
Haven't found any.
I just got it and only had time to slap it on the bike before heading out to a day of shuttling. I had no time to play with preload, oil level or viscousity.
On the fast bumpy DH course the front of my Bullit stuck to the ground like never before. The compression dampening worked so well that the front didn't dive as much as it used to durring hard braking into fast corners.
After about four runs I checked to see how much travel I was getting and it was only about 130mm so I thought maby the stock oil was too high and that I should ckeck it the before the nekst(eks key) ride. I kept riding and the fork felt so good at high speed that I had the confidence to follow a friend in on a 30+ foot double jump. This jump is not much of a kicker so you need to hit it at about 30+mph otherwise you may get splattered on the wrong side of the landing. That is far faster than I have ever jumped before. The landing felt like butter.
At the end of the day I noticed that I had gotten 195mm out of 200mms travel out of the fork. I can't figure out where in the course I may have compressed the 888 to that much travel(not even on the double) beause I NEVER felt ANY big jarring hits to the front end of the bike all day. Any other forks that I have used, when you are riding and you compress the fork all the way, you know it. I can't believe how plush this thing is throughout it's whole range of travel.
Dialed in out of the boks(eks key again). I like it!
