since i bought my XMC 130 fork in 2009, it has spend most of it's time going back and forth to DT HQ or their local rep. Initially it worked fine, but 2 months in, it overextented (probably the neg air chamber poped) and after a couple of months of travel, it arrived functional but leaking oil. It took them 1,5 years of testing and sending the fork back and forth and last year they sent some new seals to stop the leak. However, stiction is terrible in mid to full travel and despite changing oil weight 3 months ago, it still remains or getting worse. I've been in contact with DT's technical dept. all this time and it's been serviced by the local repair shop. However, problems still prersist and even if they promised to replace the fork if it still wasn't up to spec with the seals and oil change, they haven't committed to that.
Any similar experiences?
I've tried many forks in the last 15 yrs, including marzocchis, Fox and Rst, never have i had such a headache!
