    Help!! Need Lefty Max 130 RLC Spring!

    Help a brother out! I'm T-3 days before leaving for Moab, doing a bearing reset and find my spring broken! It's a Max 130 with the Fox RLC cartridge... Manual says I need a KH034/ or 035/ in Ti or a KH038/ or 039/ in steel. Yeah, I know I should get the PBR kit, but I think I'm too late now...

    Anybody got anything of these around??? I'd be will ing to pay to overnight it etc....

    TIA

    I might. If I do, I could ship it tomorrow. What spring rate do you need?
    This is a Pugs not some carbon wannabee pretzel wagon!!

    You still have PBR kits? How hard are they to install?

    Yes, and not hard to install with a Castle tool.

    If you're thinking of putting one in a Fox though, you need a new lower, as the ID of the bore is different. Any 2005 or newer "non Fox" Lefty can take one.....

    Leg, sorry. Pricey.

    Better off selling that fork and buying into what will be more future proof anyway. Damper parts (as well as springs etc) for that fork are impossible to source now, and won't be getting better.

    If it runs great, and is perfect for you, and you treat it well, it is serviceable for the foreseeable future, just FYI.....
