    How to bleed XLoc Remote Lockout on Rockshox RS-1 Fork

    Hey guys,

    My remote lockout feels stuck/does not extend all the way out - I'm not sure it's working properly on my RS-1 fork. I am looking to try to bleed the Xloc Sprint lockout to fix the issue - but not sure how to access the other end of the system to attach bleeding syringe (on fork).

    Can I just bleed with one syringe (on the lockout)?

    Anyone have any experience with this or have suggestions?

    Thanks - andyo

    Hi,
    did you have any joy with bleeding your remote? Just got a new bike with RS-1 fork and find the remote hose stupidly long, so I want to shorten it. Have just been looking at how you bleed the remote. SRAM tech page only mention bleeding from remote end, not damper end, so am not confident this will work as only 1 syringe is being used. There seems to be very little 3rd party info on correct method.

    Hi -

    I checked out this RS-1 Service manual:

    https://www.sram.com/sites/default/f...ice_manual.pdf

    -it looks like you have to completely disassemble the shock to access the damper side for proper bleeding. I ended up just bleeding from remote end, dropped in syringe and pulled out a bunch of tiny air bubbles, added more oil, sealed it and presto now works perfect.

    Since you want to trim the hose you will probably have to access from both sides. I'm wondering tho, if your careful - keep the hose vertical, trim, reinstall and just bleed from remote if that would work? Just a guess, maybe worth a try. Bottom line it looks like a bit of hairy work. Good luck.

    Use these instructions..!! Easier than you think.

    That is the fork instruction manual, but doesn't include the instructions to bleed the remote. The one below is for remote service and covers the different versions SRAM has. RS-1 remote is at the bottom. You bleed it just from the top, with no need to install a second syringe.

    Very easy to so. Just make sure you cover the brake caliper so you don't accidentally drip hydraulic fluid on the pads.
