    I've got the 2013 Durolux RC2 and I've only had one ride on it unfortunately (I'm trying to sell my frame to fund another) But it was without a doubt the best performing fork I have ever ridden. So much so that I've convinced my mate to order a set! I'm really trying to be a bit more mecanically minded, and although I understand the negative spring and air chamber etc. I'm still unsure as to how the damper works? What sort of volumes and weights of oil should be used for a 65kg rider?

    Is there anywhere I can get the Q-loc2 axle aftermarket? I'm fed up of the q-loc jamming inside my wheel :P

    Brilliant! Cheers @LasseB
    @SRvancouver1 I would, but as LasseB points out, I'm in the UK. Love to see you guys being so helpful though! I knew there was a reason I've converted 3 of my mates to Suntour enthusiasts, one has even sold his Lyrics and bought some SF14 Durolux RC2's

    Hey,
    Just came back from my workshop after changing bushings in my durolux. I can testify that the guys at Suntour European support is friendly but also a bit slow. It took them about 8 months to supply new bushings. I contacted them directly but they told me to contact my local distributor. So the order went through the swedish (yeah, I'm in Sweden) distributor to Suntour Europe and then they kind of slept on it. Distributor had to remind them a couple of times and eventually I had to write them a sour email myself to get it out their doors. But they compensated by sending me new bushings for the Durolux and my Epicon free of charge and i could pick them up at my lbs. A nice gestrure in the end. I'm not saying it was bad service, they were fast to reply once contacted but it was a bit slow to get things done.

    Just some input.

    The Durolux!

    Hey Guys!
    The Durolux fork and shock have both been running great!
    Here is a simple fork overhaul maintenance.
    I have been getting lots of request for a damper overhaul video too but, that will have to be in the future!

    Does anyone know if you guys are planning on building a Durolux rear shock with a piggyback?
    I'd love a high end piggyback DX

    Hey guys,
    I've just noticed a knocking/clicking sound coming from the durolux, it happens whenever the fork is compressed, no matter how small. It clicks just as it starts to extend after absorbing a hit, could it be the bushings? or do I just need to lube the air piston again?

    Hi, Niko!
    Thanks for your new Video. I have Durolux RC2'13
    1. Did you damper have a small cone spring between Compression chamber and rebound chamber? I can't see it at your video, but i have it in my damper.
    2. I could not fill to my damper more than 64 cc of oil. If I will fill 72cc I will loose a part of travel.
    3. Do you allow to be a small quantity of air in damper during assemble?
    4. I have a strange hiss sound during rebounding - is it normally? It become louder when rebound speed set to slowest.

    PS. It seems you became a little bigger.

    I had a same problem after the first oil change. It sound from damper, low speed compression part. When I changed oil the second time (2,5wt), sound disappear.
    2 days ago I fill the damper with 10W oil and it seems that sound returned. But I need a little more time to check.

    Hi thank you very much!
    Yes, I have become a little bigger!
    Too much post riding beer and big meals!
    However, I still ride lots and lift weights 5 days a week.
    hahahahhah

    Ok, Im sure if you watch the video you can see the little spring.
    Maybe I forgot to film it, but yes mine is there.

    As for the oil level, you must play with it.
    You want to get full travel so, if 64cc is where your damper settles in full travel then thats perfect. I like my fork to ramp up at the end so I think for me 72cc felt good.

    Yes, there is a small cavity of air in the damper, its a straight damper with no internal floating piston or rubber bladder.

    The hissing sound you experience is just the oil and air moving through the shims.
    Its normal in this fork or damper because there is air in the system.
    If there was a rubber bladder or internal floating piston(IFP) then the hiss would go away.

    Its a sound I too dont like but the fork in general is pure butter and feels very reliable.
    It would be cool if Suntour is conjuring a way to keep cost low and battle the cavitation hiss!

    Thank you for the feedback, let me know if you need anything else!

    RideOn,

    Niko

    Niko, thanks for you answer.
    I can confirm that fork is a very plush.
    I removed yellow drum from air chamber to exceed air volume (i saw this suggestions for new SR Auron). As a result a have SAG not more than 25mm and the fork is working good without breakdown. I'm 76 kg dressed, pressure 54-56 psi.
    What is your tuning of compressions? How much clicks from full-open for LSC and HSC?

    Anyone knows of the real world weight of Durolux TA forks? I'm looking for the weight of 120-160 1-1/8 fork but not been able to find it. Thank you in advance!
