Mine were well past the 30 hr mark within a few weeks of arriving on my new bike so went about the oil change, the lower oil doesn’t seem to be any different from before except for the damper side having a hexbolt with rubber seal rather than nut and crush washer. But what I can’t figure out is how to get the float fluid in.
When I unscrewed the top cap I discovered that it’s connected to “something” so doesn’t come out once loose.
Well other than to lob them in favour of some SID XXs…
Let air out of forks.
Undo bottom nuts and thread back on upside-down.
Whack with dead blow mallet.
Let oil drain out.
Remove nuts and pull lowers off.
Inspect and clean stanchions, remove and replace seals.
Start lowers back onto stanchions.
Squirt appropriate oil through holes in bottom legs.
Push all the way on, tighten (using torque wrench!), refill with air.
I’ve done all that, it’s the float fluid that’s the issue.
Every guide says that goes in the top of the air chamber, so having done all of the bottom oil in the legs, it’s only that step that I’ve not been able to figure out how to do based on what all the videos have shown for doing it (top cap off, dump in, top cap back on)
