    2010 Boxxer Wc

    Recently replaced rebound damper. Amazing difference! Stiction almost non-existent!
    Also lubed seals with silicone gel.
    I weigh around the 180 lb mark and my fork feels best around 55 - 60 P.S.I.

    Why'd you have to replace the rebound damper?

    RS came out with a new damper that is given out to any owner of the new 2010 boxxer WC or Team.... I'm guessing there was a problem that was found on the first production runs, but has been corrected on current ones.

    I have one of the first 2010 teams go-ride had in stock, and I have my new rebound cart sitting on my bench waiting to go in, as well as the new bottom out spring

    Are rebound and bottom out parts free of charge covered by warranty?

    Free! I went to my LBS and said hey hook me up with the updates for the 2010 Boxxer Team. They said OK, and about a week later I showed up and walked out the door with them.

    EDIT: there are also youtube videos RS put out on how to install the new parts yourself if you are so inclined.

    That's funny, my online dealer told me I should pay. I'll try again, thanks for let me know.

    Thanks for that Country Boy. I guess I need to explain things better?
    I've heard that quite a number of folks are having issues with the new WC fork regarding stiction and tight tolerence around the re-bound damper.
    SRAM sent a new damper (free) and there was a major difference between the two:
    the one in my fork didn't even move, and the new one they sent was very smooth.
    After installation, the fork really "came alive".

    Yes, my original damper (that I replaced) was actually so tight that it didn't move.
    The new one (recently replaced) slid very smooth on the shaft. Once installed, it made a HUGE difference.

    I think it is funny that your online retailer treats you like another number. You should have to pay for the upgrade since you whored yourself out to an online retailer.
