    Hi
    Does anybody have any idea about this?I changed the oil and cleaned the cartridge,but oil still leaks from the lock-out knob.Do i have to fully dissasemble the cartridge to fix it?If yes,how?

    P.S.Sending it to LBS is not an option as it is far away and it provides terrible service .

    Seals

    What kind of damper is it? More than likely, it is a worn out/damaged seal. Depending on how old it is, it may be time for a complete rebuild.

    It is a super fatty DL80 model 2002.Which seal are you refering to?Is it possible to buy it and change myself or I should send the fork to someone like eighty-aid?

    O-ring

    There's an o-ring that is inside of the lockout piston that the thru-shaft runs up through. This is probably the culprit. Since the nut on top of the damper is pressed on, it would be best to send it to a repair center. They'll get you fixed up right.

    Mine's leaking again only after six months and probably about 400 miles road riding (Bad Boy). The headshok is a good fork, it gives so much but takes so much cash in return. My damper cartridge is leaking oil, what seals do I need to fix it?
    Thanks everyone.
