    That help????
    A lot! Thanks! I notice your info says 172mm for 07 forks, and the 07 manual says 192mm. Any idea why the difference?

    I pulled the forks again today to fix my “not adjusting” rebound adjustment. While I had it apart I adjusted the fork oil level to 192mm, per the manual.

    Why? Because that was the info I received on the subject from the lead Buell engineer when Buell was actually a company.

    As per Danny:
    Air gap fine tunes the forks
    Slightly larger air gap extends fork seal life
    Slightly larger air gap slightly softens the compression characteristics

    That answers that! Thanks! I knew it would be slightly softer with the larger air gap. I really, really like the suspension on the Uly. It's both comfortable and confidence inspiring. I don't really know how much oil was in it prior to the refresh (leaking fork seal which was fixed with the Seal Mate), so I'll just have to ride it and find out.
