    Broken Lefty Bearing Retainer

    My Lefty was a bit gritty when compressed so I disassembled it tonight and discovered one of the bearing retainers is broken. Any idea where I could purchase a new one and what the cost will be? I am referring to #3 in the diagram below... It is a Lefty Max FFD 140mm.

    The clip that holds the outer bearing races in has come loose. My problem was one of the actual bearing retainers (where 22 needle bearings are held in place) broke. I have the problem fixed and the fork is ready to go once again. Your issue is a lot more involved...
