    I tend to agree with your position on cleaning and re-lubing the unit. I am hardly a an aggressive rider and do not beat up my bike at all so there has been no damage to the fork in that respect. As a matter of fact the dust wipers are dry on both sides of the fork. The only oil I saw leaking was from the little red rebound controller on the damper side. I am going to get the oil and give it a go with a good cleaning fill it back up per specks and ride. Worse thing to happen is I find a bad oring or do a rebuild over the winter. Thanks for your input tonight David.

    Worst case you can always get a replacement o-ring at the hardware store... And Judy Butter on all friction parts and o-rings, glide rings and seals and into the dust wipers lips.

    You're welcome

    Just came across a thread on O-ring sizes David! Looks promising.

    Hi,
    I have rebuilt my son's Specialized hotrock 20".
    I put the front forks through the powder coating oven before realising that there are plastic guides in the forks that the tubes run inside. These have now melted.
    Does anyone know where to get replacement?

    The job went well. Had a couple "crap now what" moments and replaced one o-ring. Refilled the oil to specs and everything works like new again. Thanks to all who care enough to share their experiences with all. This is a great resource and sharing center for all things mountainbike!!

    Yeah, find out what fork you have. Which manufacturer and model.

    2012 Reba 29er RLT (15mm Maxle version) service question

    I have bought a 29er Reba with 15mm thru-axle lowers and I surprised how should I loose the nut at the air side. It's soo deep inside the legs! I have just found SRAM's service manual .pdf but there is only a note to this question: "For hollow bottom fork legs you will need to use a deep 10 mm socket to loosen and unthread the air shaft nut."
    Which socket tool should I search for (especially if I would like to use a torque wrench for proper tightening)?

    Well you can get a simple deep 10mm socket of the right size for your torque wrench (like 1/2 or 3/8).

    A deep socket is like a regular one, but taller/longer. Any one that fit is gonna do the job.

    I usually have to use a few main tools for fork servicing. A long sturdy flat blade screwdriver, one smaller/thinner, a few metric hex wrenches and 21mm/24mm, etc wrenches or 6-point socket for the top caps depending what's best. Then a regular 3/8 or 1/2 wrench with short, medium and long extensions, and a few sets of metric sockets to find the right fit for every fork. It also helps if you have a pretty complete tool collection in your shop (not bike-related tools, but general tools). Also a few lint-free rags, a nice wide and large container to drain the oil, many paper rolls and isopropyl alcohol bottle for accidental spills and stains, a little flashlight is also useful, and then cir-clip pliers and rubber mallet too.

    Supplies would include new oil, Judy Butter or similar (oil friendly grease), isopropyl alcohol to clean up the old oil, thick grease for the coil springs (if not immersed in oil bath) and music+beer.

    I would also print out tech data and instructions you could need, but them in a binder inside plastic protectors and usually have at least oil volumes and exploded view of the fork, and also a few blank sheets to take notes if needed. This will be your workbook for bike stuff in the future.

    So here ya go


    This is what you need here :

    Hi! I have Recon Silver (2011) with turnkey damper. Turnkey damper have a code 43-4015-016-010, but in RS spare parts catalog I can`t find the item with that number. Can I use another turnkey damper?

    Where did you get that code from, it isn't listed for any of the 2011 Recon Silver's dampers.

    Look on pages 17, 18 and 19 of the 2012 Rockshox Spare Parts Catalog:
    http://www.sportimport.de/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/2012_rockshox_spc_rev_c.pdf

    Standard Turnkey: Part # 11.4015.306.000

    Remote Turnkey: Part # 11.4015.306.020 seems to be out of stock everywhere.
    Remote Motion Control: Part # 11.4015.306.030 seems to be out of stock everywhere too.

    There is other dampers that would probably work work with your fork too.

    Oils: Can we get OEM to Motorcycle Charts?

    I have read on a few locations that the older Fox forks use a Torco RSF Medium oil (see pictures). Name:  Fox 7wt.jpg
Views: 1251
Size:  8.0 KBFork and Shock Service Information-0000_torco_rsf_racing_shock_fluid_-.jpg

    The newer Fox oils are apparently made by someone else, and they are not the same (weight, color combination) as any they sell to the public. There seem to be 'red' and 'green' versions.

    Green:

    Has a cST of 47, but called 10wt.

    I read Rockshox don't use Torco, but have yet to work out more about what they might use.

    NOTE: I am working under the assumption that if the bottle is the same as a motorcycle brand, then it's almost certainly made by them, but may be a grade/mixture that isn't sold direct.

    My Torco RSF Medium is widely claimed to be exactly what Fox use. I have bought a bottle (1/3 the price of Fox fluid) and have used it successfully (although I don't know if I could tell if it was not exactly the same). The Torco/old Fox is only specified for a few forks, most use the newer bottles.

    How much would it cost to upgrade the damping on a Rockshox Sektor R to motion control? What parts do I need and how do i get them? Universalcycles.com seems to have the right part listed for $61 but it's out of stock. (can't post links, sorry!) I haven't found the same part anywhere else.

    Hello- looking for a service manual for my wife's RST Gila T4 fork on her 2004 Specialized Hardrock. The links at the top of this thread appear broken, and I got no reply from the email listed on the RST site. Any tips? Thanks!
