My RC2DH Lyriks seized up a little in the monsoon rains of Morzine the other week and finally need a service, so I've started on it with a refresh kit from TF Tuned.
I'm fine doing the lowers, but should I be doing the damper (in my case a Mission Control)? Manual says yes based on every 100 hours of use and had the things since end of 2011, frequent riding, plus it was ex-demo so had some use before I got it.
Problem is I don't have all the spares. O & glide rings, nor snap ring pliers. The TFT kit doesn't have the spares for the damper, though oddly has the suspension fluid which I assume is for it (as there's a separate bottle for the lowers oil).
Would you touch the damper, or leave it and just go with servicing the lowers? How would you know when to do the damper, or would you go with servicing it at the advised interval?
Only issue is on compressing the forks it was sticky. Like something rubbing slightly inside as I push down.
Oh, and on compressing the Mission Control side I get a squishy liquid sound, but given the oil in there I'd assume that's the normal sound.
