Hi Has anybody with Andreani cartridges had problems with little or no damping effect from the adjusters. Regards Bob

Mine seem to work ok. When I thought I had a problem it turned out to be the rear shock not throwing enough weight on the front to allow it to work correctly. Rear shock adjusted problem solved. Sometimes professional help is required.

Hi OldG,

are you sure the correct position of the damper rod was set at install as per the instructions?
Cheers,
Dave

Hi Guy thanks for the replies, yes I did the 4 turns in on install, maybe Gasman is right and I need pro assistance as there is very little difference between in and out.

Sorry Bob, just re-reading your original post, I'm not exactly sure what you're asking; are you saying that turning the adjusters makes no change in the amount of damping, or that there is little damping to begin with? Also, which sides - the compression ("C") fork or the rebound ("R") fork or both?
Cheers,
Dave

HI Davamb, There seems to a slight change on the rebound from fully in to fully out but on the comp side none as far as I can tell, its as if the needles valves are not closing down enough. Bob

Smoething is wrong, there is a significant difference when you turn the knob.

Hi, I have Andreani front forks fitted.  Did you have them set up by a specialist? I see you are Bristol based. JHS Racing in Keynsham May be worth a visit. They have a couple of suspension specialists who should able to help. I believe they do a lot of suspension upgrades.

Yes, twice.  Once for MOT which involved them having to complete non scheduled work on a rear brake calliper which failed the initial test. Second time was for replacement left and right lower fork stanchions, new fork internals, replacement front pads as they become contaminated with fork oil from leaking seal and lastly replacement of top yoke as the original was seized to the forks due to corroded bolt, as well as  setting up the front suspension.Labour rate was 50 per hour.  Work appears to be of good quality. Time will tell. They kept me well informed on costs and timings. As I mentioned in an earlier post, they seem do a lot of suspension work, notably for racing.
