- RS Lyrik 2 Step not stepping. Help me understand why.
I know I probably should send them to somebody to get them fixed but I would rather know why they arnt working and fix them myself. I have got the service sheet of the SRAM site and after stripping I think I have worked out how the 2step works.
So what I did is drain the oil at the top of the leg and reset the IFP as it was mid way through the housing. I refilled the top of the leg with 5wt oil, RS recommend 2.5wt but I didn’t have any. Now as I understand it when you set the 2step to min it opens a port which gives the oil more room to move around and this means the IFP can move up and this lowers the travel. Well I think that’s how it works but I am probably wrong.
After putting them back together the 2step still isn’t working but I don’t understand why. Could it really be that the setup is so sensitive that using the 5wt instead of 2.5wt means that the oil can’t move in the way it is supposed to?Posted 7 years ago
Did you change the seals at the same time as rebuilding? If not this may point to a possible cause as will the use of 5wt which is not what is specced.Posted 7 years ago
Hard to diagnose without having them in front of me.
I’d also suggest maybe a change to coil Uturn as well as you’ll get some weel performing trouble free forks with only a marginal weight gain.
I just spoke to fishers and the said send them in to get the new stuff fitted as it is better. I wonder how many different types of 2step assemblies there have been over the years.
I did think about swapping to u-turn but I really like the idea behind 2step and the fact that if I loose(or gain) some weight I can just change the air pressure and not spend £50 on a new spring.Posted 7 years ago
