    Reba Race 2006

    reba race 2006, remote lockout , oil leaking at the gate control .....

    It happen when the fork was inverted / transported inside car.

    Already open out the motion control side to check, all look fine.....seal look fine but may be need replacement..

    The gate control doesnt work well now if adjust to max, fork still can compress in.

    Any service kit can get to repair this ?

    Sorry, it's an inner seal in the actual compression MC unit, AFAIR you have to replace the entire unit. Personally I wouldn't worry about it, check the oil levels and change/top-up as necessary. This was something that used to happen regularly and once you don't invert the bike it's fine. Check the SRAM site for the exploded PDF and other tech docs.

    The MC damper IS NOT a lock out, it will never fully lock out, you will always have up as much as an inch of movement depending on how you tune the NEG/POS air pressures. If it's moving more than this, the you likely don't have in enough oil.

    I dont mean like FULL lockout...but before this, i can feel that i lock...and i still can compress it little bit only, but now it can compress in some more, but with more pressure.

    You made sure you put in 110cc of 5W oil +/- 5cc?? Oil level is very critical for this, if it's 15cc too low, you'll get what you're getting and the the more out you are, the worse it gets.
