    I just got a d.street 24 for my dirt jumping, park bike and i added about 10 psi to each leg and went to go ride it and it tops out horribly. It doesn't have adjustable rebound but it seems to top out harder if you put more air pressure in. What should I do?

    run less air

    using heavier oil will also help and more of it.

    You should check the oil level. It's pretty common for new Marz forks to have less oil than needed. If there is not enough, the rebound circuit will not work properly since there will be no oil as you approach full extension.

    no. CHECK the oil level. if you add to much you can really mess up your fork. and why cant you take some pressure out?
