- I fell off and broke my Reverb Remote!
Youll be lucky if its only £50. Full remote assembly is closer to £90. Sounds like you’ve bust the remote piston so you need a replacement button kit but You may also have damaged the bore which means you need the whole lot
Edit… Reading your op again, sounds like fluid may have come out when the hose came loose so try a bleed first. You may not have damaged the lever if it doesn’t feel broke?Posted 4 years agozipMember
I snapped the button piston on mine when I crashed. I tried using it after without realising it had snapped and it scored the inside of the remote assembly rendering it useless. If I were in your position I would disassemble and inspect before doing a full bleed and operation. A button is a lot cheaper than the whole remote assy!Posted 4 years ago
Any help much appreciated. I’ve looked and hopefully dont want to pay £50 for just a remote.
When I came off the hose came out of the remote and the remote maybe could have taken a hit. ATM the remote button is completely compressed. Does this mean its bust or just because the hose isnt pushing fluid against it it isnt pushing out?
Thanks in advance!!!Posted 4 years agojolmesMember
Did the same thing coming down Jacobs ladder, thought I had just ripped the hose out but upon later inspection the barb had snapped and something in the lever broke, figured this out after bleeding it with a new barb inserted and the lever was still compressed 🙁
Gave it to grip cycles who returned it to rockshox and they just sent me complete new one, only had to pay the postage cost. Bought it 2nd hand form here too so it might be worth trying your luck with them.Posted 4 years agokimbersSubscriber

Done this myself, the snapped barb will unscrew, then buy a new barb, £10 off ebay . Screw it back in, cut the hose to remove the broken barb and screw the hose onto the barb. If your lucky only the remote will need bleeding but most likely the whole system. All in all £10 to buy and about 30mins to do.instructions on bleeding on utube.Posted 4 years ago
