Fork Mid-valve

Fork Mid-valve

Which is a better configuration for use with the "mid-valve", a check plate and a spring or a shim stack?

The application would be street/road racing.

I have always seen a spring and a check plate, but I recently heard that Honda has ditched this on the CBR1000RR in favor of   a shim stack.

I figure that that the check plate would offer more flow than a shim stack, but that the shim stack would allow you to tune the damping more precisely.

Does anyone have any experience with this?

RE: Fork Mid-valve

That had some interesting information on it even though they were only concerned with dirt riding.
