    External dropper maintenance

    Hi all, I have a tranzx externally routed dropper where the cable routes to the collar not the head of the post. Just wondering, with internal routed posts, I can unscrew the collar to put a dollop of grease under the seal. Is it the same with the external post? With the workings within the collar, my head says I shouldnít mess around with unscrewing it, and the instructions say not to as well.

    How are other people servicing your external posts?

    IDK about the tranzx, but of the droppers I've had, all had their their own specific procedure, parts and supplies for overhaul, so there was no generic process. Some, I could remove the stanchion collar and apply the specified grease. Others, not even remotely. You need to find the service instructions for your post...or maybe someone who has experience with that post can weigh in.
    What, me worry?

    Hi, thanks for the reply, the service instructions are pretty basic. Wipe down the stanchion and seal, donít ride in mud and donít open the collar. Just wondering if anyone had dug deeper into it to grease the internals to extend its life.

    Itís model ysp36.
