    Fox Float DPS Lever Maintenance

    Hello,

    I just bought a Stumpjumper as a former demo bike. Bike is great for the most part with a bit of tuning needed.

    One thing I am worried about that I noticed today comparing my stumpy to my buddies was that his lever on his rear shock locks into 3 positions.

    Mine just does a total 360 in either direction.

    Is this a simple fix? I have tried searching around a bit and have found mixed results.

    Thoughts?
    Thanks!

    If you look at the top of the shock just above and behind the dials, you'll see a small hole with a set screw in it. That set screw protrudes into a slot in the shaft of the lever and holds it in. The slot only goes part way around the shaft so the screw also serves to stop the full rotation of the lever. If the lever is forced too far, the end of that screw can break off. Worse, it can get bent. You can try to remove that screw but if the end is buggered up to badly you won't be able to get it out or get it out without wrecking the threads. Here's a pic from the Fox service instructions:



    Scroll down about 1/5 of the way down following Fox page to see the instructions:
