    2012 Talas mech.

    Hello forum, I have noticed something different in my talas when i lengthen the fork. It used to just spring right out. Now, i either have to pull or cycle the fork.

    Any ideas what might be wrong? I just changed my oil and seals today but this problem started shortly before. I was hoping that with the new lube, oil, and seals the fork would be back to norm.

    Thanks for the help guys!

    Most of the time this is from stiction in the Talas chamber, or some of the mechanics in the knob on top of the Talas chamber.

    If you have the inclination to bring this to a suspension mechanic you could probably save yourself some hair pulling, because I personally hate opening up Talas cartridges (and I am a shop suspension mechanic, and I have opened up many of them). If you do want to dig in yourself, there are instructions on service.foxracingshox.com You will need some Float fluid, and I recommend some Slick Honey as well. Just clean up the sliding bits, give them a bit of Slick Honey, fill the appropriate chambers with Float Fluid and that will be your main line of defense.
