No Dez kind of like it the way it is I think slow speed handling is better as the standard set up, have tried it the other way but lost a little slow speed stability, and I do like to drive it slow as well as insane speed forks are the best upgrade for this bike, they dont leak and balance the front end perfect!! run thin oil 10 to 20wt I have hammered this bike over everything without anything breaking, only lost a shock top but that was my fault

Well I think they have, cant say I have noticed it as much with the brushless set up and oil forks, maybe the weight of the forks have helped and I have tightened up the steering springs out of the box it was very bad.

Hallo together,

I am new in the forum and i have also bought the Anderson M5.
yesterday i have made the first attempts and i must say it need some experience to drive it well but its very funny.

For me the dampinf of the front fork is to hard so i want to have a look inside how to make it more soft.

I have some question how to strip the upside down fork.

I think i have to unscrew the cylinder at the end of the steer tube o must i unscrew the nut in the top to strip it completely?

Thank you very much in advanced an please excuse my english.

Best regards

Marc
