Someone told me that my new 2012 SID 29er forks where a doddle to service so I thought I would give it a go.
After a few false starts I now have the lower legs off.
I have downloaded the servicing instructions but they are a bit vague on what I am actually going to do. They go into lots of scary detail but an overview would be nice.
So what does a basic service entail?
Is it just taking the lower legs off. Checking the seals and changing the oil in the lower legs?
Stanchions and top stuff looks good.
Couple of observations. Lower legs were oily but only a few drops of oil actually came out. Foam rings don't look too dirty but they look like they are twisted over. Do I have to change them?
I now have to get some 15wt oil to put back in the lower legs.
