    Rough Ride Solution

    For anyone on the fence or unaware of the issue on the F6B regarding the tooth rattling front forks, I can vouch that the anti dive system shim works. Very well. The bikes front forks now function and absorb shocks as they should as opposed to the jarring ride I was experiencing before the mod. It took me all of 5 minutes and 10 bucks to resolve it.

    Yes. A very bad idea from Honda.
    Are they still doing that?

    Keep in mind that the ADV (anti-dive valve) has a purpose which is to prevent the front springs from compressing too much under hard, Emergency "REAR" braking.

    Another "Rough Ride" solution is to not ride the rear brake on a rough road. If the ride is STILL rough when NOT using the rear brake then the ADV plunger is stuck and needs to be repaired...Which costs money...Or a person could just disable the plunger with a shim.
