    and many thanks in advance, I’ve looked online and can’t find a simple description explaining

    thanks but that link didn’t work

    I have looked on you tube and could only find older forks and not talas

    All i need to understand is where to insert the oil and I’m done, i wish it was simpler than it is

    Try again

    Some goes in the foam wipers (float fluid), some in the lower leg to lube them (green stuff?) and you leave the damper alone. Iirc the oil for the lower leg has to be poured in through the rebound adjuster and retaining bolt holes.

    How far through servicing bodging a seal change are you? 😯

    enduro seals are fitted

    I have the forks back together with 100ml of 10 weight oil in the non air leg , pit in through the bottom of the leg , adjusters are back on now

    I am unclear on if any oil needs to be put into the air side from the bottom

    it’s the 25ml in the oil bets on each side that has me lost, is that in through the tops ? or did i get it wrong and the 25ml is in through the bottoms on both and the 100ml goes in through the top of the non air leg ?

    Put kettle on & watch the second part of clints video. He does a much better job than the official fox explanation.

    just a quick question ,

    i see that there are 3 oil references for my Fox RC2 talas 160 forks

    where do i insert each please

    2010 36 VAN (R and RC2 dampers)
    FOX 10 wt. Damper 100cc
    (I have added this from the bottom of the leg, none air side)

    where are the pool baths ? is this inserted from the top ? and if so is there then no oil to be inserted from the bottom of the air leg ?

    FOX 10 wt. Damper-side Oil Bath 25cc

    FOX 10 wt. Spring-side Oil Bath 25cc

    all done, i put the oil in the tops in the end for the oil bath amounts

    Oil bath is the legs, so 25cc in each leg from the bottom. The 100cc is for the internal damper and shouldn’t need altering. If you put 100cc in the leg, take it out.

    thanks so 25ml in each bottom leg from the bottom, thanks

    so the 100ml where is this exactly please? can you describe ?

    Never done it myself. Here’s possibly how you get it out, different fork though – http://service.foxracingshox.com/consumers/Content/damper_oil_remove.htm

    I’m sure someone who knows will pipe up..
    Actually, here is the exact procedure from fox for the 36 Van R and RC2 fork. Damper info near the bottom. – Van R – http://service.foxracingshox.com/consumers/Content/Service/Forks/36VAN/36VAN_R.htm

    RC2 – http://service.foxracingshox.com/consumers/Content/Service/Forks/36VAN/36VAN_RC2.htm

    Drain out that 100ml
    Table suggests 30/15ml assuming 36 fit talas.. Inserted as per posts above.
    You are doing nothing with the cartridge so ignore that oil.
