    Fox F80 RLT maintenance

    Sorry to sound like such a dolt -- this goes along with my last post -- but I would like to know what the recommended maintenance schedule is with a Fox F80 RLT. My previous bike had a Manitou SX-Ti, and the maintenance schedule on that fork was easy...when it started to leak oil, it needed service. And given that the Manitou leaked oil every 6-12 months, it was always in for regular service.

    The Fox on my NRS has had no obvious problems with leaking, clunking, or stiction like my Manitou had, so I'm not sure when it needs service. I just realized that the fork has been on the bike for 1 1/2 years and has not been serviced, so I'm sure it's due. But what should I look for to help determine if/when it should be serviced?

    Are the Fox forks easy to service? Do I need special tools? Should I trust my LBS with this? Or is this something a do-it-yourselfer can tackle?

    You can do it. Get a 26mm socket wrench and make sure you use the right shock oil. The instructions are pretty straight foward, you can also go to for a step by step guide
