Just received the Tec fork top adjusters for my Speed Twin. Unusual to have a cartridge in only one fork but it seems pretty straightforward dropping them in.
I’m wondering if I set these half way on the adjustment will that give me the stock setting when I drop them in?

I really wanted to know where stock was before I fitted these as I’m very happy with the suspension, I’m just not so happy with the roads around these parts.
Looks like I will have to shorten my spacer ( is it plastic? ) by 8mm to have some adjustment in both directions.

Have taken some measurements from the adjusters and I think the info given might be incorrect. If you buy these alone I would suggest you check all measurements before cutting the plastic spacer.
From measuring the old and new adjusters I believe you will have to cut off 11-12mm to get you to stock equivalent, and allow plus/minus adjustment.
I’m going to drop George at Tec an e mail.
There’s only 10mm of adjustment so if you want to get anything out of it, it’s important how much you cut off the spacer.

Ok got an update from George at Tec and the initial 8mm is for another fork top adjuster........, So if you buy these for a Speed Twin you will have to reduce the plastic spacer by 11mm to replicate stock and give equal +/- adjustment.
Measure twice cut once.:grin2:
