What problem are you having? If you set it to "1" it shouldn't affect the dive.

I suppose if you went inside the units, you could disable them completely somehow.

Anyway, welcome to the forum.

As said, anti-dive only activates when the brakes are applied. Your symptoms, if I understand what you are saying, indicate that the springs are too short.

That sounds normal anyway. Unless it is topping out. Weight shifting to the rear is going to happen.

Since this is a trike with a VW engine in the rear, you are going to get front end lift. Anti dive does not stop the front end from lifting. It's purpose is to stop the front from diving.

All normal. As for the "wobble' when you take your hands off the bars that has been beat to death and the answer is ......don't take your hands off the bars. The front end rise is just physics. You might be able to limit the rise by cutting the front springs shorter but be careful. If you cut off too much the front will bottom on bumps.

Have you not noticed in a car that it lifts to the right on a take off(way worse on a heavy commercial) its because the pinion is trying to climb the crown wheel
