- Slow Reverb
Lube the seal. If it gets dirty / dry & dusty it can add friction and thereby get slow.
Also ensure your have not crushed the tube by clamping it up too tight.
I ride mine all year round in all weather and just had it serviced by TF after 13 months of use/abuse – they said it was fine. So they do seem to work well.
If you have issues send it to TF – very fast and good service.Posted 5 years ago
Thanks will lube the seal as it has been hosed…ooops should I say sponged down a few times recently. Will also bleed.
Thanks everyone. Just love STW, its the only forum I know about where you can post a question and have answers within minutes!
Ps. What type of lube for the seal?Posted 5 years ago
Fun and games again.
2 month old reverb is holding pressure, but now quite slow when extending from a compressed state back to full height.
Previously had problems with another whereby it wasnt holding pressure thus failed seals, but this one has got slower over the last couple of weeks.
Does bleeding help the speed at which is returns?Posted 5 years ago
A clean and pushing the pressure up slightly higher (a recent return from SRAM on another reverb I have was 300PSI) and a bleed has sorted it. Looks like there may be an air leak as when bleeding alot of air was released. Will see how it goes. It could just be that when I shortened the hose when new I didnt bleed properly….time will tell.
Many thanks AllPosted 5 years ago
