    Magura Laurin Lowers - oil

    Is adding oil to the lowers on the Magura Laurins similar to that on my old Manitou Blacks. Pull the rebound knob, unthread the bolt holding the lowers and then squirt in a few cc's of lube?

    Basically yes.

    Unscrew both lower leg screws halfway, whack em with a soft faced hammer to unseat the piston rods, remove screws and pull lowers off a little, let the oil drain, turn the fork upside down , add new oil etc etc.

    I'd advise removing the lowers completely and giving the foam rings and wiper seals a quick clean and lube whilst you're at it though, rather than just squirting in more oil. Magura seals are excellent but the lowers and seals do get contaminated over time.
