    2011 rockshox lyrik r solo air

    So I just bought a 2011 enduro comp with a lyric mounted on it, there doesn't seen to be much of a rebound adjustment on it, with it adjusted all the way to the turtle, it is still way faster to come up than my sector coil.

    Are they all like this? I have only had it out like three times.

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    Does changing it from all the way open to all the way closed make any difference in the rebound?

    Yea, it does make a little difference, but nothing like my sector.

    yea, I am going to go in and feel the other enduro comp to see if it is the same, if it is better, I will have to take it back to them.

    Thanks

    there is room for improvement

    I had the same issue with my lyrik solo air r. I took it to the shop where i bought it and they found the knob was stuck. They went over everything and i noticed some decent rebound improvement after their service and inspection.
    I wanted even more rebound than that so I upgraded to the dual flow rebound which forced me to upgrade the dh compression damper as well. There was a defect found with the chassis, so they are replacing the fork with 2012 rc2l dual position air. So brand new top of the line fork with all the upgrades i was after in the first place.
    the damper upgrades were special orders in the $300 range. If something happens to go wrong like my case, SRAM customer service will step up and then some so you got nothing to lose by trying.

    Thank you for that, may be a similar issue, except I do getty all of the clicks out of my rebound setting, I can tell a slight diff between all the way turtle and all the way rabbit. I will take it in, I'm not sure where my sweet spot is for setting it, but id like to have the ability to slow it down.

    Thanks again for your reply.

    By the way campionp, did the bike shop handle the interfacing with sram? Did they basically take care of the rebound repair at no cost to you? Other than the upgrade that is.

    I don't think I'm going to pump 300 more into it, I just want my adjustment.

    Thanks again,

    Jeff

    Thanks

    If the compression damper oil has leaked down past the inner seals into the rebound/lower area, that will screw things up. Has happened on mine a couple times over the years.

    Easy service - replace the main o-ring seals between the two damper areas and it's good to go.

    May not be the issue, but it's a possibility. An easy fix if it is the problem.

    The damper on your fork is horrible (a buddy has one on his Enduro and I've had some time on it). You'd be wise to upgrade to the DH compression and rebound system; HUGE improvement (what I run). Chad at Redbarn can hook you up for under $200. It's worth every penny, trust me.

    Have FUN!

    Thanks g man, I will look into that. The bike is only a month old, so I'm hoping they week fix it for free. If I have to dump more money into my brand new enduro comp, I may just upgrade the fork like your suggest. This seems to be a common issue with this fork, I'll take the warranty repair, (if they will do it for me) this time and when it shits the bed again, I'll go with the more gooder innards.

    The new damper setup runs a bit over $100, and is super easy to swap in.

    Thanks, would I have to pull the lowers off of the uppers to do it? I've never mucked with forks before, and this one is air. So that is also intimidating me.

    Yup but SRAM has an excellent vid on Youtube to walk you thru it:

    If you're only doing the upper damper, not messing with the lower/rebound damper, then you don't even need to drop the lowers. Pop the old upper damper out, dump out the old oil, re-fill with new (the SRAM service docs can tell you how many mls) and pop in the new. Done.

    AFAIK, the new compression damper unit should work with your existing rebound unit in the lowers. If that's the case, it's as simple as doing the above, and you're good to go.

    If not, then yeah, gotta' pony up for the new rebound unit as well, then drop the lowers to do the whole thing. Even if you have to do the whole thing, it's not hard.

    You NEED the dual flow rebound to work with the mission control damper. That does mean dropping the lowers, but it isnt any harder than pulling the damper really. Watch the videos, and make sure you use the correct amount of oil. getting the oil level rightis probably the most critical part of working on rock shox forks.

    rock shox is redoing it under warranty. When it shits the bed again, and I have to fork over cash, I'm going to stick the better inards in it.

    Thanks for all if the support!

    Ah, okay. Good to know. Wasn't sure if he'd have to swap the rebound as well, or not.
