    Manitou Black Re-assembly Help

    I was replacing the seals on a Manitou Black Elite, when I found damage to the damper assembly. Needless to say, I left the fork dissembled while I ordered the part. It got lost in the mail, and 3.5 weeks later I don't recall the exact assembly . I looked all over, but I can't find a 05' Black Elite SPV schematic anywhere, they only show the 04 -which looks different from what I have. The big issues are the two washers, does anyone know where they go? (I'm not actually sure they even came out of the fork)

    Secondly, can I turn the spring side into an open bath? I don't see anything wrong with it, other then I'd have no idea how much oil to put in.

    Send a email to Manitou, they might be able to help you out

    Have you looked at the 2005 Black Service Manual ?

    The photos on page 10 might be of interest to you.

    Seeing where one washer goes in those photos I'd say that the other washer goes on the other leg where there's a part that looks the same.
