I modified one to disable my anti-dive.
I had to file out the ID to increase the size from .562" to .650". Also had to file down the thickness from .079" to .045". Anyone knowledgeable, is that too thick? Someone posted that they used .040" wire, and I was pretty tired of filing by then. lolkbach said:What did you do in the way of the mod?

I had been reading that slipping a shim under the Anti-dive valve nut would cure some of the stiff ride that people were experiencing.I did the mod by slipping a thin SS washer in there (cut a slot in washer with a Dremel)and low and behold, its a whole new bike on the highway. Now when I ride over expansion joints and the like, its smooooth. Not like hitting a brick at 70mph. The anti-dive still works when applying the front brake.
Took me 20mins to complete including cutting the slot in the washer.
I don't think this disables the AD, it just allows the internal piston to keep a fork oil passage open a tad more.
Fred H's web page shows the method.
