    I’ve got one of those, 120 is normal but I’m pretty sure you can go up to 140 as the top end ones did use 100/140 talas.
    If its a fox fork you can google for f120 service instructions.

    I’d say if its never been touched its probably shagged, and easier to replace. I run a rockshox reba 120 on mine, and servicing it is a doodle. eBay for a bargain. You could give it a go though, but if you don’t have tools or oils you could end up spending as much on the kit as on a 2nd hand fork and if you’re not one for doing it regularly there’s probably not a huge amount of point.

    I’ve got an 07 stumpy like this one

    Stumpy

    Forks have never been touched and after many years of abuse and now 6 months of sitting idle, they are dead. Pissing oil everywhere and definitely needing tlc

    Question is, is it worth servicing or should I just replace with something from classifieds? Wouldn’t have much of a budget for replacement but, if I did, could I put on a longer travel fork?

    If I go down the service route, this will be virgin territory for me so, what kit would I need and any good online guides?
