    I did tighten the bearings.
    The sway is coming from the pivot point.
    I took it apart and there seems to be play
    between the bearings and the sleeve.
    It doesn't look like the sleeve is worn that much.
    I guess I'll call Iron Horse and get a new sleeve to go through
    the bearings. I might also get a set of ABEC 5 grade bearings for this thing too.
    looks like 12 x 28 mm bearings in there.

    Anyone else have this problem?

    Those are nice images guys.

    Hey, i looking into another fork and I found these 2 for the price

    2008 Marzocchi 55 TST2 for $325

    or

    2009 Marzocchi 55 R for $320

    I was thinking of the 09 since its newer, but the TST2 might be better.

    What do you guys think

    yeah I am really considering buying one. IH calls it a DH/freeride bike, is it actualy? the 09 model has 6 inches travel, can the frame handle 6 feet drop w/t 170 lbs?

    Hey anyone who has an Aniki or Ojiki whose put on a 8.75 eye to eye shock and a dual crown (preferably Boxxer) measured their geometry after? I can't afford a new frame but I was talking to my boss and he thought that dropping the eye to eye by .25 in may drop the BB .5 in and then with a taller fork it would slacken it some without raising the BB beyond what stock is. Just curious if it would be worth it.

    Also anyone have any luck with any shock that helps with small bumps? i'm thinking of getting a Roco and messing with the shims a bit to soften up the LSC. Thanks for the help.

    Edit: by the way to clarify I have a 2006 Ojiki, which came with a 9x2.75 stock. And i'm also thinking of making some custom mounting hardware that would shprten the eye to eye by 1/8 in on each end so another .25 in, but i'l.l have to see what the frame clearance will be.

    I sort of wish i would have gotten one of these bikes... I didnt know about it so I bought this one from RScycle: http://www.rscycle.com/2009-Iron-Horse-Warrior-4-0 I have had it for a month and a half. I just think I am not gonna do XC I like to do AM DH stuff and some jumps and drops. I wish I could send it back and give them like 200 hundred dollars for a aniki! LOL probably not gonna happen though. I wish I would have seen it on RSCycle it is a good price for what it is though. I might just upgrade my fork.

    I got a yakuza used from an older guy who bought it at hunter mountain. The thing is great except that fork. The Spinner Ammo 1 is trashy. It compresses a full six inches for me under just my body weight (I weigh 170). My buddy and I are doing surgery today to see if we can save it. My brother is trying to find me a marzocchi like his Kona Coiler hasbut I would rather get the spinner working properly.
    YA KU ZA is japanese for 8 9 3. They have a version of black jack in Japan that instead of 21 you don't want to break 19 and 8 9 3 adds up to 20. The mafia there has the name because it means outcasts to them. ANIKI is older brother, superior, or in hebrew it means grace.
    I don't have any pics yet, but I love my bike. Its my first real baby and I love bombing the hills on it.

    I just recently sold my aniki guys, it was built up for my 270lb body and now I'm down to 185. Once my tax return hits, I'm buying an MKIII most likely.

    Just ordered an 09 Aniki, looking forward to it. I'm pretty sure the spinner fork will be the first thing to go!

    Just arrived an assembled. RSC messed up the orginal shipping, sent the wrong size frame, but they quickly resent the correct sized frame, great service.

    I already rode the bike a little, seems very very very plush, Definetly needs a rear shock and fork upgrade.

    Also, I have got the bad feeling that RSC forgot to probuild the second shipping of the correct sized bike. This would be bas, since I paid for it.

    Can't wait to build this bike up

    looking at a marzocchi roco rc and a marzocchi 55R.

    Also brakes are going to be avid BB7.

    just need some money!

    Axle stuck

    I'm doing some upgrades to my Grandsons Aniki.
    Seems that the last trip to Diablo, he broke his rear derailleur
    and ruined his rear wheel.
    I put a SRAM X9 on it and got a good deal on a wheelset, Azonic Outlaws.
    I'm hoping they hold up.

    My problem is, I can't get the front axle out.
    I took both endcaps off the thru axle.
    Then I completely removed the 4 pinch bolts on the end of the fork legs.
    I even went as far as to open up the end of the fork leg a little thinking the
    axle may have been stuck or something.
    The axle now even spins inside the fork leg but I still cannot tap this axle out.
    I've tried to tap it out in both directions but nothing works.

    Has this happened to anyone else?
    Any advice?
    Thanks in advance.

    so you pulled he 4 pinch bolts and the two end caps? and the s$$t will not come out still? is there a retainer clip on the inside of the fork mount? I mean i've pulled mine off for transport a lot and never had a issue but from what you are saying there has to be something on the axle thats holding it in place

    I talked to some guys today that said the axle might have rusted up in the bearings.
    It spins in the fork 'cause it's aluminum.
    The bearings as well as the axle are steel.
    It has been soaking in Power Lube since this afternoon.
    I'll give it a whack tomorrow and report back.

    Any other advice?

    Thats ironic almost, the Axle in my spinner ammo has too much room and play. The entire wheel wobbles. Looking into the outlaws,

    My Domain 318 fork just arrived in the mail, ordering the 1.5" headset and stem parts tonight!

    I can't get this axle out.
    It's driving me nuts.
    If I keep banging on the end of this axle, I'll need a new one soon.

    maybe alcohol or a rust braking spray, I am still confused at what part of the axle is free. Does axel spin inside of the wheel?

    Try prying open the ends of the axle clamps on the fork using a flathead.

    I did open up the end of the fork tubes with a flathead.
    This allows the axle to spin in the fork tube.
    I think the axle is rusted together with the inner races of the bearings.
    I am going to make a press using a small socket on one side, a large socket on the other
    with a bolt down the center and see if I can pop this thing loose.

    For those of you who are following,...........
    The axle did not free up.
    I ended up cutting it out of the fork with a hacksaw.
    I was changing the rim anyway but it is a loss.
    For some reason the aluminum spacer and the steel axle had fused themselves together.
    Even after extraction, I tried to hammer the 2 pieces apart and it did not happen.
    Still funny how dissimmilar metals can fuse themselves together.

    I ended up using a Marz 66/888 axle and it worked just fine on the Spinner Ammo.
