Straight on, from each side. Sort of beneath the head.

A time honored method of applying a low psi safely into a small volume (forks) is to pressurize an air tank to the desired psi and use that to load the forks. Maybe need to load the tank 1 psi higher. Accidentally over pressurizing the forks too much, which is easy to do with a compressor, can do harm and is tricky to adjust accurately. As with many good solutions, credit goes to Dave F many years ago.

At 4000rpm it’s just entering it’s comfort zone and starting to make hp. By design. Below that is the “entrance ramp” to mechanical happiness. No “potato potato” in the scheme at all.

Your work truck is turbocharged? Care to guess on IT’S rpm? 😁

The CX turbo turbine turns a lot faster than 30k. 😁 I think I recall reading like 100k, but I welcome correction if I’m off. Never hear those riders complain though 😆
