    GT Aggressor 2.0 - Suntour M3010 Forks - Help please...

    Hi guys,

    I have searched the forum as well as google and come up with nothing, I cannot see anything as per my manual but do any of you know if it is possible to adjust the Suntour M3010 Forks if yes, how ? There are 2 possible twisty things at the top of the forks should i take on of those off could i then adjust the compression rate or will i need new firmer springs ?

    Thank you for you assistance...

    Ok i popped one of the caps off and i was expecting to see a spring but it was simply a hollow tube. I then check the bottom of the fork to see if it could be adjusted that way but nothing...I know they are poor forks but i am hoping they can be stiffened up a bit ?

    the google machine tells me wow....thats a terrible fork....50mm travel....looks like its got adjustable preload but im gonna go out on a whim and say no lockout (i have an suntour xct v3 and the top looks similar but its an 80mm and supports disc.)
    those tubes are elastometers just leave em.

    I never learned to ride a bike. It is my deepest shame.

    Very basic suspension forks such as yours have only a simple steel spring inside plastic sliding tubes. According to a previous poster, there is supposed to be a preload adjust, which basically pushes down a bit on the spring to make it a bit stiffer. They usually don't make a huge difference. I would think anyone over 200 lbs would be seriously overloading that fork, or most entry-level suspension forks.
