    Manitou Answer ti-spring repair

    I have a 1999 vintage Manitou on a Santa Cruz Superlight. The fork is overly stiff. It has been in storage for 8 years. Is there a quick attempt to get it moving again. I do have the pdf file of the manual. I have read about oil leaks, is there a way to add oil to see if that helps?

    The fork will need to be opened up and cleaned out and the seals are easy enough to replace. Since you have the manual you can drop the lowers off and open the top caps and have it working properly pretty easily. Good luck and if you need parts look HERE
