ADJUSTMENTSB46 MONO DAMPER WITHICS, PCV, DP and RCVICS adjusterhigh/low speed compression adjusterDPThis damper is equipped with high/low speed compressionadjustment, ICS [Intelligent Compression System] en RCV[Rebound Control Valve] (see picture).PCVRCVrebound adjusterThe high speed compression adjuster is the purple knob on top of the damper, the little screw inside thisknob is the low speed compression adjuster.The black knob is the ICS adjuster and the rebound adjuster is located at the fork.Take care: adjusting the rebound damping is only possible when the motor is with it’s wheels on theground.Turning the adjuster clockwise will stiffen the damping, this is for all adjusters.The maximum number of clicks is different for each of the adjusters, the high speed adjuster has about 15clicks, the low speed adjuster about 20, the ICS adjuster about 15 clicks and the rebound adjuster hasabout 25 effective clicks.Counting the clicks always has to be done from fully closed adjuster (= fully clockwise).Please take care that the maximum number of clicks will not be exceeded. If you do the adjustermechanism might be damaged.Reiger Suspension BV motorcross 2009


ADJUSTMENTSB46 MONO DAMPER WITHICS, PCV, DP and RCVHigh / Low speed compression adjustmentThe compression damping is adjustable with a high / low speed compression adjuster. Thehigh speed adjuster is actually changing the medium speed but this is popularly called thehigh speed.The low speed compression adjustment allows you to modify the low speed compressiondamping. This has nothing to do with your driving speed but with the damper speed.This adjuster has about 20 clicks.With a small screwdriver you can adjust the low speed damping by turnig the little screwinside purple knob.Fully clockwise is always the starting point. At this point the adjuster is completely closed.With this adjustment you can make your motor more stable by closing the adjuster or gainsome traction by opening it.With a fully opened low speed adjuster your motor will feel smooth and it will absorb smallbumps very nice but it will also be a bit less stable.A damper which is equipped with PCV you will not notice this because it provides stability.A stable damper will make the motor more controllable.The purple knob is the high speed (medium) compression adjustment.This adjustment has about 15 clicks and like all other adjusters fully clockwise is your startpoint and the stiffest setting.Turning it counter clockwise the damper will feel softer on landings and driving on stones andholes will be smoother. If you open it to much there will be much movement and especiallyon sand tracks it’s more difficult to drive.ICS adjustmentICS [Intelligent Compression System] is a new and by Reiger Suspension patented system.This system detects whether the compression is caused by the chassis that is going down(for instance after a jump) or the wheel that is going up (when you drive on a bump).With the black knob near by the high/low speed adjuster you can define how much supportyou want from this system. Fully clockwise is the stiffest setting and from there you cansoften it with about 15 clicks.Reiger Suspension BV motorcross 2009


ADJUSTMENTSB46 MONO DAMPER WITHICS, PCV, DP and RCVDPThe DP [Double Piston] system is developed to avoid the damper from bottoming.With this system you will get the support of a second piston which starts from a predefineddamper travel. This second piston has like a normal piston a shim setting so that it is notadjustable from the outside.The activation point of the second piston might cause a ticking noise, this noise is part of thesystem and no failure of the damper.RCVRCV [Rebound Control Valve] is developed to gain as much traction as possible.RCV is a system which detects whether the wheel is touching the ground or not. If not, itdirectly opens the rebound damping so that the wheel is back on the ground earlier to gainmore traction.You can notice the RCV system when the motor is on a stand and you try to pull up thewheel, you will notice then that there is a couple of mm play on the damper. This is normal.QUESTIONSIf you have any questions about the damper or damper setup please do not hesitate tocontact us.Tel.: +31 (0)575-462077Fax: +31 (0)575-463316Mail: info@reigersuspension.comReiger Suspension BV motorcross 2009
