I have been experiencing a top out clunk under the first cm or so of travel. From what I understand this is caused by lack of oil in the motion control damper. After a bit of research, I discovered that RS specifies different quantities of oil in both the 2011 tech manual (under the regular motion control damper spec - 123mm) and the 2014 fork oil charts (134mm). Could this lack of oil be from whoever assembled the fork using the 2011 manual and not the 2014? Which manual should I use if I service my fork?
Note - The 2011 fork oil charts not supplied state the same quantity as the 2011 technical manual.
In the assembly procedure for the lower legs in the 2011 tech manual, it states that if I have "hollow bottom fork legs" the process is done differently. I was wondering how I tell if my fork legs are "hollow" as they say, besides the obvious looking into them lol. I suspect this is some kind of technology which I wasn't able to find on the RS website under specifications.
Has anyone used 15wt oil in the fork lowers where it is specified to use 5wt? Would be a cost saver if people have done this without any issues.
Note - The damper takes 15wt.
Thanks in advance! -Mike
