Is Cannondale supporting their 95-98 era headshock forks with seals, or replacement parts? F500- F 600?
Anything 2004 and older will have English threading as opposed to metric, thus, they have no damper parts left, thus, since they cannot guarantee absolute certainty in full, factory fresh service regardless of what's needed, so they do not accept them for service.
The seals are the same though.
You do the math....
I had a Lefty serviced by Mendon a couple years ago, really came out great. Do you service old things like the DD60, Mendon? I have one on a Super-V, the bearing races have rust spots, I doubt there's any oil left in the thing... just wondering whether it's worthwhile having a rebuild done it.

My question is,if I run into problems can I send you just the cartridge instead of the whole fork?Any chance of me ruining it?
Damper and telescope wear as a unit.

How? Can't really say, I've seen it all, and there are many ways.
Thanks for the reply Mendon.. I actually meant to say I'm gona try rebuiling the cartridge not the entire assembly. I assume the telescoping part is the part with 88 needle bearings.I've already replaced the boot and re-greased the bearings,the bearings had plenty of grease when I removed the boot and bearings looked Very good. I would Never try replacing the needle bearings!
I'm gona wait till the first salt truck salts the road then I'll switch to my winter bike and Try rebuilding the cartridge. I've rebuilt many Bobcat hydraulic cylinders in the mid 90's so I have confidence in myself. If I do have a problem your the Man I'll send it to.
How? Can't really say,I've seen it all,and there are many ways..... I about pee'd in my pants when I read that LMAO I know Exactly what you mean,I work on alot of different things that people try repairing themselves and it's Amazing the things I've seen.
