    Fork Identification

    I have a fork that I need help identifying so that I can find the manual and perform an overhaul to it.

    I believe it is a 2001 or 2002 SID Race (it has the race sticker but no other identifying labels).

    From the rider's perspective:
    The left leg has a positive air valve on the top and a negative air valve at the bottom.
    The right leg has an air valve at the top with a sticker indicating its the Pure DeLite system 20 - 60 psi. The bottom of the right leg is the rebound adjustment.

    Both air valves at the top have a plastic cap that screws into the top cap to keep the valves clean - black in color with a rubber o-ring for sealing.

    It has both v-brake and disc brake mounts - the crown is scalloped where the uppers are inserted.


    Thanks.

    Looks like a second generation SID.

    Ohhh, I want to play!
    I'm guessing 2001-2002. (Will check my little "black book" at work to confirm)

    awesome thanks. I couldn't seem to find this on sram's site - I guess because I am fairly certain the fork is not an '03.

    Your fork is an 03-05 SID. The easiest way to distinguish is the arch. The SID generations are:

    98-02 - 1st generation
    03-08 - 2nd generation
    09 - 3rd generation

    Within a generation, aside from incremental improvements, really the only changes you saw were in the damping system. The 2gen SIDs used Pure damping, with the SID Team and WC received Motion Control damping in 06.

    A great resource to help identify parts is:
