Has anyone fitted the new Fox SKF low friction wipers to a RS fork?
J Tech don’t offer this service, the key/index is for each table on the prices page 😉
Pretty sure they don’t fit as have looked at this a while ago. But will check in a minute as have a set of RS forks to do, the dimension of the recess of the lowers of the forks differes in diameter from memory.Posted 5 years agoretro83Member
Interested to know the outcome of this BWD.
I prefer Enduros to the RockShox seals, the oil looks brand new when it comes out unlike the OE ones. Not sure if that’s because of the wiper, or because it has a proper oil seal like Marzocchis (and rockshox used to once upon a time).
I personally can’t notice any more static friction compared to OE. i know the older design had more friction than OE though (design was revised a while back)Posted 5 years agounusualbreadMember
So i fitted the SKF seals to my revelation and it works just fine. The seals stay in place and are doing a great job of keeping the oil in and seem to be keeping dirt out. The reduction in stiction is more subtle than the difference it makes on the fox forks but im pretty happy with them overall.Posted 5 years ago
Missed this. I’ve been running a set of the SKF seals on some Revs since, erm, November last year. They’ve been ridden a far bit, Morocco and the Peak mostly, and they seem to work just fine. Stay in place, don’t leak oil that I can see, and they’re nice and plush, though as above, it’s a subtle difference from stock RS seals. I ought to change the lubricating oil in the lowers some time soon, so will let you know if a mix of grit and slime comes out.
I’m not saying LoCo’s wrong mind, just that for me they’ve worked, but the improvement over the stock seals isn’t massive.Posted 5 years ago
