    Possible '98 Rock Shox Judy Xc

    I was recently given this fork (as an upgrade over a old '95 Mag 21)


    It was off of an old '98 Bontrager Privateer Comp.
    I think it is a 1998 Rock Shox Judy Xc.
    Does anybody know what kind of maintenance this fork needs and if there are any available rebuild kits?

    If it's a XC then it should be oil filled and use a proper ish damping cartridge even back then, as long as the bushes are okay keep riding.

    Oil change and keep riding to they die I guess.

    If it uses the Cartridge style (I think it is) are they serviceable?
    And are there any sites/forum topics that talk about that?

    if that fork has more that 50 miles on it, I guarantee you the cartridge is blown.

    1998 Judy is a cartridge and it's designed not to be serviceable.

    Might check in the vintage forum for more info

    PS...I had that exact bike, even though it was a Wisconsin made Bontrager it still was a fine riding frame. I wish I had never sold it.

    I was afraid that it was not serviceable w/o a new cartridge.

    As far as the bike goes, it is my Dad's current ride, and if he ever upgrades I am definitely going to try to snag it!
