Didn't you once have a problem with a set of Glide forks? Did you ever get them to stop slamming at the top on rebound? My V-Twin forks slam, w/ 7oz. of fluid in them, but I think I know the reason why. They don't ship the forks with the (45769-49, 68-49) baffles or (45764-49) stud screwed into the fork tube plug! I didn't noitice it when I pulled the damper assemble apart to repair a fluid leak, but in a "staged" pic I took, I can now see daylight through the top of the spring coils, while the fork tube plug is sitting on top of the spring.
There's definitely no baffle set attached to the plug. The (46045-49) spacers, used before 1958, are not included with complete rebuild kits. I rebuilt a OEM set of forks without re-installing the old spacers, but I used the old springs and had no slam problems.
Did your forks have baffle assemblies?
Take some pics over there and post 'em. We've never been to davenport. Get some elevation pix. Eat hearty. Yar
Do they cook tri-tip brisket in Iowa? They do in Ventura, but it doesn't reach too much further south, successfully at least. I think it cooks slow all day. A BFFB knuckle owner (Anders friend) @Del Mar had a chunk of it wrapped in tin-foil, sitting off in a corner under a covered grill. He buck knifed and even slice and it was good. Not bar-b-que sauce. Different marinade altogether.
