Rockshox Monarch IFP valve tool
I want/need to service my Monarch rt3 shock, and you need an adaptor for the ifp valve.
I’ve found it for sale on a handful of sites but stock availability is dubious.
Does anyone happen to know if this one from Chain Reaction will fit the monarch and my Rockshox shock pump?

kayak23 – you don’t need it if you’re just doing a basic air can type service. The SRAM video shows a full strip and rebuild which is probably only necessary if you think there’s a problem with it. As for checking the IFP – its a tiny chamber so you’ll massively affect the reading just by connecting a pump/gauge to it. Try experimenting with the min & max recommended pressures and work in from there.Posted 3 years agohypnotoadMember

It still doesn’t specifically say that it fits a monarch though, and if you look at the official red rockshox one, it has a sort of recess above the o-ring whereas the others don’t.
I may try just the basic air can service but it would be good to be able to strip it myself anyway. The service kit doesn’t seem that available in this country either though… 😐Posted 3 years ago
Damascus, Its dead easy to do, you need to unscrew the cover off the IPF chamber,fit the adapter and re-pressurise to 250 psi using a shock pump, ideally you need a pump with a lock out to get an accurate reading as you will loose a bit when removing a standard pump although you could add a bit more,The valve uses nitrogen as standard but air is ok, The shock was blowing through its travel (now stopped) and the lockout was ineffective (now sorted) HTHPosted 3 years ago
