Ernest et al,
I just called GMD and they said they can look up the weight used by the
name of the guy who had the work done. I hope can find my paperwork.
They told me fork oil varies so it's best find out what's in there.
Worst case I can send them the forks and have them re-worked for my
weight. they're for someone a little heavier than me anyway.
So the click is normal? Is there nothing I should check/adjust/replace
while I have it apart?
