Probably, but I'll have to look at the packaging to make sure. Did you get that number from their web site?

Yes I did.
It's the only valve kit they list, does both compression and rebound. The others are replacement cartridges.
I assume this is setup for rider weight, riding style, the standard setup stuff.

That's got to be it then Paul. I went with their recommended firm settings; C34 (compression) and R19 (rebound). So far I'm well pleased. You can add, remove or change shims to soften or stiffen the action from there but you would need to buy additional shims to make it stiffer as they don't supply any extras in the kit. Seems like rider weight mostly affects spring selection and not so much the damping settings. The latter seems more based on what you are looking for performance/ride wise. Even going with the firm setting seems like a win-win to me.
