More air is just like increseing your damping, but go too much and youll be needing new seals, i used 12 psi in last trike forks, recomnded was 6 i think!

Sounds like the anti-dive valve assembly is knackered, Jonny. This has to be replaced as a complete unit. The other way to go is to blank it off as you said and fit progressive springs. Air pressure should be between 6 and 8 psi with the anti-dive fitted, any more and you pop the seals. With it blanked off and progressives fitted you should be able to have an air pressure of between 7 and 14 psi as per non anti-dive Zed's.

Hi Johnny,

If they are Kwak GPZ type anti dive units I would recommend a visit to [URL=http://www.gpz900r.co.uk/gpzzone/home.html]they do overhaul kits for anti dive and in the tech section give some very good advice about anti dive and the problems of just blanking off.

Hope this helps

Chris
