Has anyone got a picture of the 25mm shims that you have fitted into the forks and a source?

And does it just go in at the top of forks below the cap?

I like to know if it helps the ride.
I'm considering investing in the front forks and would like to know the best way to improve the ride without spending like a politician.

The 25mm shim preloads the fork springs.
I have used PVC schedule 40 pipe in my other bikes.

Thank you. It is difficult to tell if this is what was meant or Valve Shims.

Do you know if it goes at the top or bottom of the spring?
Goes on the top of the fork as that is where the top of the spring is located in the fork. The technical term is spacer. :cool:
