    Pike 454 Oil Change?

    Can someone direct me to a decent thread with steps for changing the oil in a 454-UT?
    I did a quick search but didn't quite find anything.

    Tnx.

    So this thing runs on just 16cc of oil in each leg???
    Seriously? The damper sucks it up? or does the damper have it's own internal oil?

    Use the RS tech manual. That 16cc you're referring to is just in the lowers, damper oil is separate.

    You might want to replace the o-rings while you're at it. None of the local lbs's had the service kit in stock when my REBA was getting stuck down last year. A quick trip to my local Ace hardware, and I was set. Just take out all the o-rings and take them to the store to match them up. BTW, even though the fork was made overseas, none of the seals were metric. The fork's been holding air ever since, and it only cost about $3 to change all of the seals, which beat the shiz out of the $25 bucks for the kit from SRAM!

    Push it, you know you wanna
    Be sure to get the factory kit, it really transforms the fork (in a good way )

    Nothing that isn't covered in the linked stuff here, but if you need a hand, I'm free tomorrow and have done plenty of Pike oil changes.

    Suspect you'll be fine though.
