- Magura Thor – Travel adjust problem, any suggestions?
Just got a boxfresh pair of new '09 Magura Thors, they're not on the bike yet and am just have a fiddle with them in the lounge. When compressing the forks, whilst adjusting the FCR the travel only drops about 10mm, rather than 40mm. Anyone else had the same problem?
Had a Google and followed the advice on the last post here: Magura forum and still no joy

Let all the air out, then pump back up. You need to open the FCR every 3rd pump though to equalise pressure in the positive and negative air chambers. Leave it open for a few seconds too as it takes a while for the air to transfer (you can hear it hissing).
Likewise when you have them pumped back up, dont just open the FCR push and let go. It takes a couple of seconds for the air to transfer and to change the height.
Lastly they will never just sit 40mm lower without load on them. If you are on the bike with them loaded however and adjust them then the static point WILL be 40mm lower.
And they are infinately adjustable anywhere between 100-140mm.Posted 9 years agogiantjasonMember
sorry for dragging up the thread again but i am looking at getting the Thors from On-One.
is it possible to run these forks without any of the remote controls and just operate the knobs manually on top of the forks to lock them out and reduce the travel when climbing?Posted 9 years ago
