Tuning

Proper tuning is what brings your suspension to life and what can be the difference between 1st and 2nd place. At DVO Suspension our goal is to give you all the tools needed to dial in your suspension and answer ALL your questions. We do our best to give you all the information you need to tune your suspension but if you need to ask a question that is not covered on this website please do not hesitate to ask us a question in our Forum.

If you have any specific needs for your suspension check out our custom tuning section below. DVO doesn’t believe in boundaries and we want to make sure that every rider is able to tune your suspension to give you the most confidence.

Custom Tuning / Compression Loader

We understand that not every rider will fit into our standard base settings. Some riders may need a custom tuned bottom loader to get the perfect set up. Custom Loader’s are available if you are having a hard time finding that perfect tune for your Emerald. The loader can be removed and installed without losing a drop of oil. This makes tuning a breeze.

When do you need custom tuning?

  • If you are above or below the weight range, above 220 pounds or below 120 pounds, a custom tuned loader may be right for you.
  • If you have adjusted the rebound, low-speed compression, and high speed compression all the way clock wise or counter-clockwise and have yet to find that “sweet spot”, a custom tuned loader may be right for you.

If you are considering a custom tuned loader, please call or email us at support@dvosuspension.com to find out more information.

Base Tunes
Setting up your fork is one of the most important things you can do to get the most out of your suspension. Follow these base tunes and get your suspension dialed. Remember, these are starting-points. Rider ability, preference and track conditions will vary.

When setting up your suspension, start from Wide-Open. Wide-Open is characterized by taking the adjuster and turning it counter-clockwise until it stops. Turn each adjuster to the Wide-Open setting before starting your base tune. Each adjustment below refers to making adjustments clockwise from the Wide-Open setting

Air Pressure Range: 60-100psi
OTT Range: 6 clicks = 1 full rotation. 15 full rotations total.
Rebound Range: 40 clicks total
High Speed Compression (HSC) Range: 33 clicks total
