    2002 fox f80rlt parts

    I have a 2002 or 03 year fox float f80rlt fork. I was doing an oil change and the part that is attached to the damper rod that screws into the top cap where the shims are has sheared off at the threads. Manual said to torque it to 50 in lb, I barely started on it with the torque wrench and it snapped right off.

    In the pic I set the piece back on there, it broke through the little holes.

    Is there somewhere to get a new damper assembly, or just the little part?

    It's a 26" fork. Straight steer tube.

    I am guessing I'm totally screwed.
    Would JB weld work?

    JB Weld would def not work. Maybe find a donor fork somewhere? With a lathe and milling machine you could make a new part. It would be very expensive to pay a machine shop to do it. Tig welding would be tricky but might work.
    Do the math.

    A lot of the older fox stuff is still serviceable, might be a long shot but you might contact fox or a local dealer and see if they get a replacement part.

    Fox just service a '03 RLC fork for me. Its worth calling the factory--have the serial number available.

    Wheres the serial number on this beast?

    I think that piece is press fit into the damper rod. I sent out emails to every suspension company I could find that did bike parts.

    I have the fat tire fest in a month so trying to get going. May get a manitou markhor if I have to

    SN is usually stamped under the crown around where the bottom of the steerer is.
    Do the math.

    Well, got the bad news from Fox. They dont have that part to fix this thing anymore.

    Just ordered a new Manitou Markhor for the bike.

    Anyone need some fox parts?

    Ended up getting the Manitou markhor and did the install myself. Feels like a really nice fork, very compliant and soaks up the bumps well. Just need to play with the air pressures now. The extra 20mm travel doesnt hurt either
