Here's a related question for you fonts of knowledge out there. I am in the process of stripping down my LM1 forks and i have got them in bits and all cleaned out ready to go back together again. Somewhere in the dismantling process I have come across a washer that goes in each fork leg. I cant for the life of me remember where they go, and therefore I consulted the LM1 parts list but they do not show up. During the clean up process I have twigged that the previous owner fitted LM2 forks innards with the twin springs and LM2 damper rods therefore I consulted the LM2 parts list but it is nowhere to be found there either. I have, however found the part on the Gutsibits website and I attach a link below to the page that it is on. You can see that it is referred to here as a Fork Damper Washer. 

My question is, where do these washers go ?

Anyone know ?

The £ 2.00 one called "washer for damper rod" goes on the rod (!) between the spring and the cartridge body. Haynes calls it a rubber cushion (n° 24) , the Gutzibits one looks like plastic, the ones on mine are  steel. I guess they prevent the end of the spring from chewing the bottom of the cartridge.

Thanks for that JPC. The funny thing is that when I purchased my pair of standard sebac type damper cartridges, they each come with an actual rubber cushion included. It is like a very thick black tap washer and is ready fitted to the damper rod in the vicinity of part 24 which you refer to. So to me, the little £2 washers appeared surplus to requirements. I wonder if this is a replacement that comes as standard these days and the little plastic ones (and you are right, they are indeed plastic) have somehow been made redundant. I wonder.
