I recently bought a used Pike 454 coil, which the previous owner never serviced. Thinking it was high time for some maintenance, I took it all apart, cleaned it, re-greased everything, and put new oil in the stanchions. Now it has noticeably less stiction and everything seems to work great. I had one question though. Is it normal to hear a slight sliding/rubbing sound inside the stanchions when it's compressed? It's not squeaky or anything, just a rubbing sound. Do I just need more grease on the spring? Is it the seals? Nothing to worry about? It's my first actual fork besides the Suntour that came stock on my bike, which also makes the same noise, so I didn't know if it's a sound all forks make or not. Any help would be appreciated.
