    New Niner Boost fork issue

    Just got a brand new boost fork and I think the threads in the thru axle are bad.

    The axle only turns 1 and 1/4 turns once the threads catch. Looks like Ill have to return the fork, but thought Id see if Im missing something before I do.

    Are these forks known to have excess paint in the threads or need to have the threads chased?

    I'm using 2 of their boost forks. No issues with the threads.

    I sent the original fork back to seller who confirmed the issue. Said it was threads in the fork but they were able to get it to work with a little oil.

    Just received a replacement fork and it has the same issue. Not sure if I should try the oil trick, tap it, or return it and look for a different fork.
