I have a Santa Cruz Blur XC with a Terralogic Lefty on it.
Loaned it to a buddy (of course) it was working perfectly, then not. No damping of any kind, compression or rebound.
I've never had it apart, but since they apparently don't service them any more (they will sell you updated guts though...) I figured what the heck... I am very familiar with the regular Fox Terralogic forks...
Turns out the inertia damper valve assembly had simply unscrewed itself from the damper tube/shaft. EZ fix, cleaned the threads, a dab of blue locktite, add oil and button up.
Works perfectly again....
I'm really surprised they do not service these, it is very simple, more simple I think than the new PBR's. It's just all o-rings and no special tools really (just a spanner wrench and BB tool for the cap).
This is one of my favorite "forks" of all time... my only dissapointment is they never made it in a long travel, where I think the Terralogic would be even more valuable.
Anyway, I wonder how many "broken" Terra-Lefties there are out there that could have this simple fix?
I do wish they had an actual oil volume listed... all the tech sheet says is add 20cc to the shaft then add more as you insert the rest of the body. It says "do not over fill"... but in what state? Damper extended, compressed, leg extended, compressed... what??! Very vague in this area...
It's working so I must have got it close (about 100cc)
