and @windyrun ... yes, the damper has made a world of difference. The front end still wants to lift, but it doesn't feel like it. I didn't realize that before the Ohlins that was head shake happening at a micro level.

yes the ohlins at 17 clicks absolutely solves the wobble

Have you tried fewer clicks (like 14) just to see how that works and feels versus 17? Mine is set at 12 and seems ok.

15 is the minimum for me 12 is very very light

Ok call me crazy or at least not mechanically inclined. But after watching your video it seems you are counting clicks in the counter clockwise direction. I double checked by looking in my sd46 manual and it says clockwise is the hard direction and counter clockwise is for softer damping  :033:

Surely clicks are measured from fully in.
I have mine set at 11 clicks out from hardest.
However, as I don't do youtube vids maybe I'm wrong  :087:

sorry about the confusion I was actually counting down after a test ride to show what setting it was on. I should have counted 17 16 15 ...
