Any way to fix/bodge a Fox 36 RC2 bladder?
Finally run out of them have they? or are they just not supplying them? We’ve been taking the dampers to them for them to service for the last month or so while they use the remaining stock of the dampers which servicing everything else ourselves.
No there isn’ really anything you can do to reform the bladder that will be a lasting solution unfortunatly, sorry, have been trying to find a suitable replacement option for obsolete dampers but nothing ‘cheap’ has come upPosted 4 years ago
Hadn’t realised that they’d kept the remaining stock for themselves! It was TF that said the only choice was a Mojo upgrade (fair play to TF, they actually said that Mojo’s upgrade price was the best value way to sort it). Mojo haven’t sent me any info yet, I assume that they wont sell the part on its own if they do have some left?
B&Q Expanding Foam into the bladder ftw 😉Posted 4 years ago
Just found out today that Fox don’t stock these parts, so instead of a simple repair Mojo want something like £370 for a damper ‘upgrade’! (Loco and TF Tuned both put there hands up to the situation)
Has anyone tried any way of getting the bladder back into shape? Can’t think of any way to try and bodge it myself, although I’m mostly still shocked that Fox wont support 3 year old kit!Posted 4 years agokwackMember
Just a quick question
Is this bladder specific to certain fox 36 forks? I have a Talas 36 RC2 circa 2007/08 I think which probably needs servicing in the near future. If the bladder cant be serviced then I m left with either getting the FIT cartridge installed or i I buy say 2nd hand pair of Van/Float 2011/2012 would I still be in trouble come service time as they use bladders?

funny you should put this up
My 36s damper went to pot a few weeks ago. (the same as it did last year in the alps). turns out it wasn’t the bladder, the damping rod had split and pulled off the attachment to the top cap.
Mojo reckon they dont make this part anymore either so they are goosed (but were VERY keen to sell me a 400 quid FIT upgrade. sadly I cant spaff 400 quid on a fork which has seen better days)
annoyingly their diagnosis was “its been over tightened”. They are the only people to have ever opened them!
email out to TF to see if they have any of the part in stock, and if they dont have it, Jtech (though he’s on holiday next week, so TF get first dibs im afraid)
Over all ive gone with the “buy some new marzocchis and hope they are back to their good old reliability!” option, but i dont have any forks for the Coedy enduro next weekend 🙁Posted 4 years agoOllyMember
pre ordered some 2014 55CRs myself.
3 year no service warranty floats my boat. Hoping they are going to be “big MX comps”Posted 4 years ago
Update for those interested:
TF Tuned – have some stock, for use on services
J-Tech – have some stock, for use on services
Loco – as per website, no stock
Mojo – no stock
However, Mojo have been surprisingly sympathetic to the cause and offered a very attractive deal on a new damper – can’t say fairer than that as they genuinely seemed hacked off by the situation too.Posted 4 years ago
