have mounted in the meantime, the dampers on my BSA A7 (longstroke model).
Have then made a test drive, there is a nasty railroad crossing nearby, was always associated with a loud "clank".
Well - now no more- the fork works perfectly with the dampers.
then I opened the top screws of my Ariel (the first time) to measure the oil level to determine the needed lentgh of the rods . What did I find?
There might be 1/2 inch of oil in the pipes. Damn PO. Have it filled up about 17 inches to the top.
Will now first make a test drive (see above) and then decide if I need the dampers or not.
