SUBTANK INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. Remove front number plate.
2. Install the front forks into the triple clamps to desired height setting, making sure that the hose fitting on the cap is directly in front.
3. Install the subtanks within the holders, and tighten one end of the hose onto the subtank.
4. Install the subtank and holder onto the fork leg, positioning the tank so that the bleed adjuster is accessible from the side.
5. Loop the hose up and down to fit on the cap fitting. Tighten the hose end onto the fitting, making sure that the positioning of the subtank does not change. With everything tight, you want the subtanks to be positioned so that the bleed adjusters are accessible from the side.
6. If you are using the optional 90 degree hose fittings, you should position the hoses to cross each other.
7. Make sure that the hoses do not interfere with any of the cables on your bike, while turning the front end throughout it's steering radius.
8. Secure the subtank holders to the forks using tape. This will prevent the holders from rotating and possibly causing jammed steering!
9. Re-install the front number plate and re-check all cable clearance throughout the steering radius.
SUBTANK PERFORMANCE TUNING
The enzoracing SUBTANK system is adjustable by bleed setting screws on the side. This adjustment is tunable using a small flat blade screwdriver. The standard setting is 4 complete turns out (counterclockwise) from maximum (all the way tight clockwise). This adjustment setting creates a restriction in the tanks which will control the air compression volume depending upon the speed that the fork is compressing. In simpler terms, the tighter the adjustment, the sooner the firmness of the fork will occur. If you are experiencing bottoming, you should turn the adjuster clockwise IN 1 turn at a time. If the action feels too stiff, turn the adjuster counterclockwise OUT 1 turn.
After a while, oil from the fork can work it's way into the subtank causing a slight imbalance of the air volumes in the fork and tank. This is not dangerous in anyway, if anything, it will reduce the progressive character of the fork at high speeds, and soften it up slightly, making it work more like standard fork. To keep the system working efficiently, you should drain any oil which has collected in the subtank back into the fork:
1. Remove the front number plate.
2. Remove the subtank and holder from the fork and hold it inverted up above the fork.
3. Use a hand pump or compressed air to pressurize the subtank approximately 10 psi through the air valve on the end of the tank.
4. Hold the tank inverted for a few seconds, while the air pressure inside forces any oil in the subtank back into the fork.
5. Bleed the air pressure out of the subtank, and re-install it onto the fork.
6. Re-install the front number plate.
