New forks: everything present and correct?
’08 Rev Air U-Turns arrived today. All very nice. And all very new to me, hence my question…
1) Do new/boxed forks come with a pump, or is it a case of "some do, some don’t". AFAIK they’re not OE stuff a la Merlin.
2) They were sold with "Poploc remote option". On the RH leg there’s the blue compression adjuster. It’s round (as opposed to "shaped" to grip), and being this "poploc" business, feels spring loaded, so there’s no real way to turn it on the fiork by hand. Am I right in thinking that in this instance, the compression is adjusted by the remote with the dial that the (downloaded from SRAM) manual refers to? No manual in the box…
Merci bucket, gentlemen.Posted 9 years ago
Forgot to add: there’s a bit of oil emerging from in/around the compression adjuster/floodgate adjuster. Just where they’ve been stored for a bit, or something amiss?
EDIT: Thanks. The only remote I have is what looks to be a simple on/off lever, as opposed to a dial-like adjuster.Posted 9 years ago
Not a clue: there was no "option" to select on t’ site, therefore I assumed (p’haps incorrectly) that these particular ones had said "option" (the shops term, IIRC). ’twas pictured with it, but I’m guessing that’s just library stuff.
Either way, it appears I do not have the correct remote. Bah. Still, saved what I believe to be the cost of this remote (£50) several times over by buying last seasons seemingly "obselete" stock! 😀Posted 9 years ago
Sorry to bang ze drum with this one, folks!
It appears I may’ve been wrong in assuming that the forks come with said remote. The remotes being available seperately (without the poploc-specific fork internals) suggests that they are indeed an option. So, sorted. Possible.
However, next one, and potentially quite silly. The cap for the +ve air chamber, situated "within" the travel adjust dial, is tight. And I mean, tight. Granted it has some oil on it so it could be that some is on the "grip" of the cap, thus making turing it hard. But, other than that…a pair of pliers and something soft/rubbery in the jaws, p’haps? Don’t want to knacker the valve body!
Cheers all.Posted 9 years agohappysnapperMember
I had a similar problem with my old revs and the +ve air cap. I found the best way was to set the U turn fully clockwise (up?), flip the travel adjust lever up and then you can grip the whole cap and travel adjust. You just need a couple of turns to get it going. Grease it before you put it back on.Posted 9 years ago
