    RockShox Duke XC Help

    Its a 2004 Duke XC and the air goes out real quick. I will pump it and it will last for a good ride. The next day it is dead flat.....is this salvagable???

    I have a Duke on an older bike. It doesn't hold air very well and leaks oil through the fork seal. I rebuilt it, but it didn't help much.
    These are cheap OEM-type forks, best bet is to save your money and buy a decent fork. Just keep the Duke filled up with air, you'll get your $100 worth out of it.

    from rockshox site:

    MAINTAINING YOUR FORK AIR SEAL


    Maintaining your forks' main air seal is quick and easy.
    Remove the air cover cap and deflate the positive air chamber by pressing the schrader valve down.
    Using a 24mm socket tool, remove the air top cap completely.
    Look inside the positive air spring chamber. There should be about 3cc/ml of suspension fork oil inside the air chamber, on top of the air piston.
    If the oil has broken down, or worked its way past the o-ring air seal, then add 3 - 5cc/ml of 15wt, 10wt, or 5wt suspension fork oil.
    Check this every month and add oil as needed.
    Continue your regular service intervals, as recommended, and change oil accordingly.
    RIP AL DAVIS
