- Pike Coil U- Turn Knack’d – Help Needed
This place is great isn’t it. Less than a minute and the problems diagnosed and a fix suggested!
Broken though, I was hoping for a minor problem 🙁 Just ordered a pile of stuff of CRC too! So I’ll probably need a new spring, do you reckon I’d be able to get it to adjust to full travel again and stick there?Posted 8 years agoDelSubscriber
bought my new ( firm ) spring from tftuned and it turned up pretty quick. have a look at their site, as they have a line for advice, and they’ll happily advise on best way to fix and if a firmer spring is warranted, and they also have a guide on how to change the spring.Posted 8 years ago
are you bottoming the fork out regularly?
you’ll want some 15wt fork oil, if you do change or remove the spring, which you can buy from a motorbike shop for cheap.
I’ve got a problem with my pike coils. The travel is stuck down in the 95mm position. When I turn the u-turn adjuster I can feel it turning as normal but the fork doesn’t move and every turn or so I get a loud ‘ping’.
I’ve got clients at the moment but was thinking of opening it up tomorrow morning and trying to fix it. I can ride it at the moment though and I’m not struggling to keep up on the DH’s. I don’t want to make things worse by trying to fix it. I’ve got a couple of other bikes I can use if it came to it though.
So anyone had a similar problem. Or anyone familiar enough with the insides to guess what I’m going to find when I open it up.
Any help would be fantastic!Posted 8 years ago
UPDATE: Just for anyone who’s interested or who ever gets anything similar. Opened up the pikes and the spring’s snapped clean through. It fits over a metal bit that is attached to the 24mm ‘bolt’ under the travel adjust knob and it broke just where the spring drops off that. Spoke to a man who knows and he says it’s not common but it does happen. I’m a bit heavy for the spring anyway so a new, stiffer spring is ordered.Posted 8 years ago
