    Rock Shox totem coil DH 2010

    How long it takes to get the proper work of this fork ? I think that it works too slow now. Maybe someone knows something about it ? Thanks !

    I am no expert, but I have just had my 2010 Totem Solo Air fixed. I had same problem as You have.
    Service guy removed lowers and but grease on upper seals, coz they were simply dry :O
    He also put so called red room oil? in a air chamber and refilled oil from bottom.
    It works much better now, but still, has to break through initial "friction".

    A buddy of mine had a lyrik come through on his remedy with no lubricating fluid in the lowers... Hit that thing with the speed lube

    What is 'red rum' ? If I disassembly my totem I would loose my warranty ? What would You say about rock shox judy butter ?

    Nah they encourage it

    Check the servicing videos under totem our mission control - the totem is super easy to work on - all you need is a pair of snap ring pliers and a 24mm socket and you are all set.

    And is it normal, that the fork is very hard during first sag. For example it is unused for few hours and when i`m pressing it, it is very hard at the begining.
    Is it normal ? Or maybe it would change after few hours of riding ?

    Ensure your lowers are lubed internally (with the speed lube)

    Then spray silicon oil on your stanchions before each ride and all will be well

    Can You give me some instruction ? I didn`t found any totem 2010 manuals. There isn`t floodgate and I don`t know is the service the same. I have to disassemble the fork ? What type of oil is used to lube ? Is it 15W ?

    I`ve filled fork with 15wt rock shox oil because there was only a some drops of red liquid. I`ve put rock shox judy butter on DRY seals. The fork runs like a butter now.
    I don`t know how much time it takes to rebound became faster ? Is it normal that at beginning rebound isn`t very fast ? Or maybe totem coil dh isn`t as fast as I think ?

    My 2010 Totem 2-Step had slow rebound initially. After about 2 weeks of riding or so it started to speed up to normal speed. I didn't notice the "slow" rebound on the trail though. It was probably just stiction from tight seals. My seals are rather dry too.

    easy fix. sell the totem and buy a zoke. best choice i ever made. my totem has been rebuilt liek 3 times and never felt as good as my evo but honestly. put some seal butter on the seals. throw like 3-5 cc extra speed lube in lowers and it should be better.

    You know, I think we have to listen to our friend Quarashi who has 2 step 2010 totem. I think the friction is only at the beginning of usage the fork. Quarashi rode his totem about 2 weeks and he said that it`s getting faster. I think RS didn`t made any mistake and initially friction is intended. My fork works better after some about 2 hours of light riding.. Hope we shouldn`t worry Right BigMac&Fries ?
