The antidive valve piston is most likely stuck.

The anti dive valve is probably stuck and will have to be taken off and freed up. I don't see $900 or even $350 for that. There is a spacer I have seen on ebay to disable the anti dive. Also make sure the left front caliper is not dragging since it is what causes the anti dive to activate.

I had the same problem and made a spacer to disable the antidive valve. The o ring fix only helps to push the piston back if it is NOT STUCK.

Hi All,



I'm having the same problem. So I was thinking of rebuilding my anti- dive on my 1500 SE 1999. This may be a stupid question (and I think I know the answer) but will you lose the fork oil when you rebuild them?
