It was time for my Spinner Aeris Sport 286-80 to refill it with oil and today, I opened it. I have Motorex 5 Wt fork oil for it. I found an article about how to change oil of Spinner Aeris Sport and I have successfully done it. Below is the article. (By the time, Spinner has really bad support I think. I've send 4 e-mails and no one returned me. I'm keeping to send email Perhaps one day I'll take the answer.)
"To change the oil:
1- remove the left (non-air side) cap
2- let the air out of the right (air side) side. compress the fork to get all the air out
3- remove the bolt from the bottom left leg
4- pull the lower legs off
5- drain the oil out of the right leg
6- make sure no dirt is on or around the seals
7- push up on the SPUL valve on the bottom of the right leg to get all the oil out
8- fill the right leg with oil up to 70mm from the top ~150cc, Spinner says 5wt but if you are light like me 142lbs I need the SPUL valve to engage easier so I used 2.5wt (motorcycle oil).
9- attach the lower legs and reattach left leg bolt. You will need something long and skinny to push the internal rod down so you can attach the bolt.
10- replace left cap, and add air
Hope this helps
This helped me and Fork is just working great now. Smart Lock-out works perfect. And its travel reached again to 80 mm. The result was just great
But my main problem is, I found a Metal Thing ( u can see it as an attachement ) in the right leg of the fork before refilling it with fresh oil. It was swimming in the dirty oil. Its diameter is approx 9mm. I couldn't understand where it belongs to After refilling the fork, I couldn't find a proper place for that Metal.
I wonder where does it belong to? And how can I reinstall it again?
