- Rockshox Revelation lockout question
I have some brand new Revelation Team U-Turn Dual air forks with a Poploc adjust bar mounted lockout. Having fitted the Poploc I’ve got to say the level of lockout is subtle bordering on “can’t-tell-the-difference”.
My old (cheap and naff) Manitou forks and my wife’s cheapy Suntour forks have a very definite lockout.
Anyone else had this experience? Is something wrong?Posted 7 years agotheotherjonvSubscriber
First – check the floodgate as above.
Then: I have seen this but on an older pair. Turn out a seal had leaked which meant the damping oil had leaked into the lowers and as a result the fork upper didn’t have enough to make lockout work.
Not saying that your fork has leaked but if for any reason oil is too low that could be a reason.
If they’re new, back to the shop / supplier would be my suggestion.Posted 7 years agoadsbMember
Got the same forks, should be very firm with the floodgate wound in.Posted 7 years agochrisrhayesSubscriber
Oil level affects lockout.
I serviced mine as was suffering the same problem, the amount of oil in the reservior is pretty crucial, can’t remember the amount but the SRAM manuals have it.
“REVELATION – 115cc/ml (+/-5cc/ml)
IMPORTANT! OIL VOLUME IS CRITICAL. TOO LITTLE OIL DECREASES DAMPING PERFORMANCE. TOO MUCH OIL REDUCES AVAILABLE FORK COMPRESSION/TRAVEL, AS WELL AS RISK DAMAGE TO FORK FROM COMPRESSION BOTTOM-OUT.”
Not sure why its leaking, but may be worth a conversation with Shock tuners. Or get a new set of seals and fit them.Posted 7 years agoliquid1000Member
Oil level in top of leg! Had the same problem it leaks out the top of the forks in transit (or when upturned) as seal on top of leg is not great. Checkout service vids on youtube. The damper needs the right level of oil to operate. CYou need two different wieght oils also. 15 and 5 wt
I started with seal kit till I worked out this was the problem, I wonder how many other have also?Posted 7 years ago
