    NEED HELP: About fork

    Well, I use a Upland Leader mountain bike as my secondary one, it was a pretty cheap deal. Its been over a year and its fork is kind of became bad.

    It has a Suntour XCM V3 (2011) Fork.

    I've seen a video on how to open the fork and clean it. Video link is here: How To: Revamp your entry level fork - YouTube

    In the video they've shown how to open budget range forks and clean them. Video itself speaks pretty good but I'm confused about one thing.

    My fork has a pre-load option on both of the top side which I have to adjust manually. Now, in the video the fork they've used doesn't seem to has a preload option (I guess).
    Now my question is, will there be any problem opening my fork like in the video? Does that preload option will be a difficult thing for me?

    Or I should just open the fork like they did in the video?

    (I Can provide some pics of my fork if you guys want)

    Yes, that one helped a lot! I'll disassemble the fork tomorrow I guess

    Thanks!

    Edit: I can't unscrew the preload part. :/ can you help on how to? I don't have the tool but the guy said he used pliers.

    Looks like a 12 point socket may fit that. If not you can take it in to your lbs to loosen it. You could put some tape on it and use a pliers, but you may mark it.
