    No clue what standard is supposed to be for those, my bypasses came 15/10 and I know that is standard for them. They might try to lighten it up some with 12's because there is no bypass:notsure: Either way, going to 8's on rebound was definitely the right move for that, and adding a flutter on compression will help. Just need to play around with the compression stack some to find where it is happiest. But I'd bet the 20 is a little stiff.

    Definitely interested and happy to throw my opinion in on what changes to make now that I've learned a lot more about valving from the LT guys

    I'll be ordering more shims the next time I order from someone who has them just to play with it more.

    All the tools are out. I'm trying to get real numbers on weight.

    No, I'm back on Dakars for right now, debating between a DMZ kit or custom Deaver SOA pack.

    When I atart d talking numbers with Deaver thier engineer sent me back to check my math.

    If you do high speed stuff, go DMZ, but if not, the custom pack for soa should be just fine. Maybe eventually upgrading to bypasses for better performance.

    I like going fast. I'm not planning to LT the front though. The new valves on the back make a huge difference, confirming that I can set up a really nice ride with SOA. Bypasses would be even better.

    Thanks, I'm setting myself up for getting a couple of 20v batteries with an adapter, then slowly phase out 18v stuff and ease into the 20 v

    I really really like them. At some point I’d like to get some of their 18v stuff too but only because some of the tools I want only come in 18v. Their 12 volt fuel stuff is dope
