Please make the bad things go away by putting a rigid fork back on that bike!

They are the lovely 'Lawwill Leader' linkage forks of Mert Lawwill fame - thought to be the future at one point...

Retroking, have you got any advice on how to set up the Lawwills?
I just got a pair delivered today from the states in minty mint condition!
Got some spare air valves aswell.
I am assuming that I will need to slacken off the "screw" to insert the needle valve? Seems the last owner must of weighed about 20 stone judging by the pressure in the chamber!
Mine are going on the Fisher RS1 Pro - as they should.

Cheers!

Don't they use a standard schrader valve on the top of the shock deelam?
If you mean the allen key bolt at the base of the shock then don't undo it-thats the nitrogen charged chamber and if you open that it'll piss oil all over you and never work very well again! (this is what I remember from the few I serviced 'back in the day', they were the Risse shocked ones if that helps, mark two made by control tech)

There is a slotted screw head with a needle valve dead centred at the top of the cylinder - haven't noticed any other things to fiddle with yet but I will heed the warning thanks!

I'll try and post a picture later tonight.
