Viking Crusader Valve Kit
These patent pending shocks and struts feature an interchangeable needle and seat design. The rebound valving adjustment can be changed with basic tools and without the need to completely disassemble the shock. With the shock or strut in a vice on its side in the fully extended position, the rebound knob can be taken off, and the needle and seat combination can be changed out. There are no special tools required, and the process is similar to jetting a carburetor. Please note it's critical that everything be kept extremely clean during the process of re-valving the shock, as there are very small orifices that must be kept free of debris.
The rebound side has 22 available positions of adjustment - the zero position and 21 distinctive clicks. As a result, the Crusader line provides for 418 different valving combinations. Depending on the needle and seat combination selected, the adjustments can cover a very large range or a narrow range with very small defined increments.
