    Blown Air Can in Magura Laurins

    I managed to blow the air can in my forks
    I've stripped them down re-greased and added oil but the air when i'm pumping them up leaks into the lowers.
    I'm hope'ng someone on here would have a cure for said problem .

    Just dont want to bin the forks and i'm a bit reluctant to hand over 100 for a new one

    Heres hope'ng

    After 3 strip-downs i really dont know what is going on, i tried pumping out the slider section of the air unit while lowers where off , put a drop of oil around the circlip holding it all in and there was no air leaking even after pushing said slider back in under pressure it still did not leak air, but when i rebuilt the forks put in a decent amout of air 70 psi + / - the forks dropped down as soon as i pedaled away giving me a dead 1" of travel. The only way i can get them extened fully and stay up but with only about 50mm of harse travel is to pump them up to around 140psi . GUTTED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Do Magura do spring units for 130mm travel ?
