Another Long Shot
Thanks Z1ppy if found that yesterday and it was down, will give it a few more goes though.
I need the manual as the rebound cartridge in the 03 drop offs i got second hand is completely shot, Windwave don't have any in stock, but what they do have is the rebound internals for the 04 free rides, which are supposed to be identical externally so it should just be a case of slotting in the freeride internals. I just want to have a look at an exploded diagram so i can confirm for myself before shelling out £100odd

I reckon with drop offs you'll just have those funny little pumping rod thingies that sit in the bottom of the fork, a free ride cartridge is a proper HSCV unit that is the full length of the fork.
Ive got an 05 free ride manual i can send to you (same as 04 near enough) if you email me. Address in profilePosted 7 years ago
[Boring]Yup, it would appear that as they're OEM forks the shim that allows the oil through slowly to give the rebound damping is nylon rather than metal, and has disintegrated. No problem, TF sell metal ones for £3, on further inspection it turns out that the reason the cartridge appeared 'siezed' was that the previous owner had wound the damping up (post failure I suspect) enough to destroy the nylon valve assembly inside the cartridge, rendering any repair useless! AAAAAARGH!!![/Boring]
David, is the manual you have the proper workshop one, or the one that comes with the forks? As the workshop one has exploded diagrams and part numbers in it for the internals, which the supplied one doesn't (I have 3 sets of z1s from 2003 to 2005 :wink:)Posted 7 years ago
