    Rockshox Silver TK Noise

    What's up guys! I'm new here and like most newbs I will have to start with a question.

    Just bought a new fork (Rockshox Silver TK Solo Air 100mm), it seem to perform well but I am bothered by the noise it makes during rebound. Sounds like the transfer of air from one chamber to another but seem too loud to be normal. I don't have anything to compare it to, however.

    Any info from someone with solo air fork or someone with knowledge about this fork would be greatly appreciated.

    TIA

    That's the oil flowing through the damper; they all do it. If you've been riding cheap forks with next to no damping, the sound of a damper doing its business may be new to you. The more expensive ones - Reba, etc. - wheeze too. My Reba sometimes reminds me of pulling up on a toilet plunger.

    Dampers operate by squeezing oil through an orifice and making that silent is tough. An open garden hose is silent but put a nozzle on it.. you get the picture. The air doesn't transfer from one chamber to the other - hopefully - except when you fill it.

    Thank you for the response! I was worried that I will break it prematurely...
