    Help with first fork service (Rockshox Recon Silver TK)

    I have a Recon Silver TK on my bike that I got back in March, and it hasn't been serviced yet. I figure it's probably time to go ahead and do that. I was going to do the lower leg service (oil and seals I guess), but also read it might be a good idea to do the damper service too?
    Here's the link to the service resources from SRAM when I put in my serial# https://trailhead.rockshox.com/en/se...ts/02T50143047

    It lists:
    00.4315.032.020
    BASIC SERVICE KIT - RECON SILVER SOLO AIR (2012)

    00.4315.032.280
    BASIC SERVICE KIT - RECON SILVER (2013-2015)

    11.4018.015.000
    FULL SERVICE KIT - RECON SILVER SOLO AIR 2013-2015

    Which one of these would I need. Just the basic kit? If so, which year? It lists the 2012 kit, and the 2013-2015 kit (are they the same?)

    I'll need oil too of course. Guessing I should go with the Rockshox oil. I think I need 15wt, according to this manual https://www.servicearchive.sram.com/...cal-manual.pdf (which was the newest one I could find for the Recon Silver before 2016). I'm guessing I need the manual from the 2011-2015?

    Sorry, this is my first bike and fork service.

    Thanks

    If I recall correctly the number after the 'T' in a RS serial number is the year so this would be a 2015 Recon Silver TK with a Solo Air spring (not a coil).

    You would want 00.4315.032.280 for seals, etc outside of the damper - https://www.ebay.com/itm/RockShox-20...0AAOSwsCddrQil is a photo vs say the whole enchilada 11.4018.015.000 https://www.ebay.com/p/1528299654

    Service manuals (sort by year to find 2015) - https://www.servicearchive.sram.com/...d/rockshox/104

    Parts catalog which is handy for identifying parts, exploded view of fork, etc - https://www.servicearchive.sram.com/...spc_revb_0.pdf

    The damper on this fork doesn't look to be serviceable other than o-rings although it looks like you can mess around and replace the damper from another RS fork.

    Seals (if needed), new oil, and o-rings and you should be set.

    The service manual lists the oil which is RS aka Maxima IIRC.

    SRAM Butter is basically Slick Honey/Slickoleum - lightweight grease for o-rings and seals.

    Awesome, very helpful, thanks!
    So I just need the basic service kit, the oil, and the SRAM Butter too.

    Yeah, if it was my fork that would be my plan for sure.
