- wheezy rp23 from new, normal?
Does the propedal work on each of its different settings? I there any damping effect throughout the range, of adjustment or does it only make a difference on the last few clicks of the dial?
EVERY rp23 I’ve ever owned has made wheezy, sucky, gurgly noises from new. Despite what Internet forums say this is not normal – they do make some noise but not so much that you notice it when riding. If the noise is accompanied by the above symptoms then it’s cavitated and needs rebuilding – I’m no expert just very experienced in shoddy Fox Rp23’s..!
Like I said, every one I’ve owned has done this, and each time I’ve sent it away under warranty, they’re come back quiet and fully functioning.Posted 4 years ago
Just had this back from loco from new it had:
[*]potential water ingress
corroded adjuster rod/s
cavitated oil that was “fizzy”[/*]
looks like water damage or bike cleaner issues (never cleaned)
so a £40 tune was an additional £20 to sort.
That’s not the issue it’s that CRC are selling stuff that’s clearly old (cheap price) but broken from new!Posted 4 years agomildredMember
Just me then?
Nope, see my post above. My most recent RP23 as brand new in one of those reduced Yeti. It’s been back to Mojo under warranty and it’s come back working perfectly and silent.
That said, I’ve recently bought some new old stock 2010 revelation teams with black box dual flow damping etc. Because they’ve clearly been sat on a shelf somewhere gathering dust the stanchions have developed some very strange ghosting in the anodising that looks just like the wear and scoring you get on old knackered Fox floats etc. to be fair, Winstanleys are being spot on and sending them to Fishers under warranty, so we’ll see how that pans out.Posted 4 years ago
