- Rockshox RL forks
I have a new Solaris ( to me) and I have just put on some RS RLs ex CRC. Now they are 130 not 120 but I can adjust internally with a spacer.
Does this mean the fork become 10 mm shorter – or just travels less?
Or is this a dumb question?
And will 130 on a Solaris kill me?Posted 4 years agonukeSubscriber
Does anyone know if it a complete bitch to do – or quite easy?
Well its going to be a bitch to do if you’re trying to fit the spacer on a set of 2013 forks but do continue and let us know how it goes 😀
…sound like the 130 revs CRC were flogging which were 2012. Fitting spacer is easy enough to do diyPosted 4 years agojairajSubscriber
Are you sure they are 2013? Do they have a dual air spring or solo air spring?
Assuming they are the dual air spring then yes you can add a spacer to reduce the travel. relatively simple job to do. I took 35-40 mins when I did mine but that was my first time opening up forks so went slow on purpose. An experienced user could probably do it in 10-15mins.
The manual shows how to do it and there are plenty of videos online showing you the process.
If they are solo air then you need a new spring assembly to change the travel. I think it’s still a reasonably straight forward job but I think parts cost a bit more.Posted 4 years agohonourablegeorgeMember
How to below, you’ll need a long socket to reach the nut on the lowers on a 29er forkPosted 4 years ago
