- Problem after full *home* service on RS Reba forks :(
I’ve just given my Rebas a full service – including spring & damper.
I took my time and followed instructions on the SRAMtech YouTube channel as well as the SRAM service manual.
That said – I’ve obviously done something wrong because although they are holding air – they are very soft. They’ll easily bottom out. I’ve put 140psi (+ & -). The lockout is also not locking out fully at all.
The only extra step I took was removing the 20mm spacer to increase the travel to 120mm.
Any thoughts on where I may have gone wrong? Damper or spring side?
Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated!Posted 4 years ago
I’ve just let all air out. When I compress the forks they go ALL the way down (dust seals touch the crown / no stanchion showing). Is that to be expected?
If I lock them out they go about 60%.
If that’s normal – then my next step will be to add an extra 10ml or so of 5w tomorrow and see if that make any difference.
Am I ok to just pull out the damper assembly and top it up from there?Posted 4 years agopdwMember
If they’re very soft with air in, then there’s a problem with air side. The damper side has virtually no effect on the force required to compress the forks unless locked out.
The lockout problem is damper side. Before you top up, you might to measure how much is still in the top side of the fork to make sure it’s not leaking down to the lower legs.Posted 4 years ago
