    You might have missed it on their website but here is Turner's Routine Maintanence guide
    Also Here is their Pivot Rebuild/Replacement Guide

    They were both written by our very own Tscheezy. You don't really need to grease them every 10 hours unless you ride in some extreme conditions. Just check it every 2 or three weeks (less if you don't ride a lot) most of the time the zerk won't take any additional grease, that means it's full. You can get them from Performance or Nashbar or a host of other places...Turner even sells them with a custom long bent needle so you don't have to unbolt the shock to get at the lower zerks. Look Here for details.

    Faster is better, even when it's not.
