I have been riding my boxxer team for quite awhile now. Used to be on a medium spring and is now on the soft spring but is still struggling to use up the last inch and a half of travel on my fork.
I had always suspected that the fork might have too much oil in the damper causing it to not use up it's full travel and I have finally got around to open up the top of the damper tonight and check the oil level.
According to the technical from sram, the distance between the top of the upper tube to the top of the oil level should be 152mm. My measurement came out to be 230mm, which is MUCH lower than the correct oil level.
I thought only too much oil would stop the fork from using its full travel. Could too little oil also cause this? Maybe the missing damper oil have leaked into the fork lowers filling it up causing the fork to not use up its full travel???
(I did the measurement while the fork is still installed on the bike but had it mounted on a work stand to unweight the fork)
