Fox Float forks wiper seal service
#11
ish, I was going to remove the air chamber last night to check the fluid level on top of it (what the last poster is on about) but don't have a 26mm socket so I emailed mojo last night for their advice after doing some conclusive testing. The 65psi I run (85 recommended) to make them move properly gives me 50mm sag when sat down yet I max out at 125 off big curbs and the drops at llandegla, its just not right so will see what they say.

Woo hoo i finally sorted mine this evening Smile  It really is p!ss easy isn't it. The left foam ring was still well saturated but the right was virtually dry, so good job i finally got round to it. Unfortunately the single sachet of Float fluid wasn't enough to do both foam rings so had to use fork fluid on the second one. Gonna get some more the weekend and do it again.

When you say left, from which POV? Its normally the disc side that suffers most and where you get more stanchion wear due to twisting forces from the brakes.

Reminds me that I need to do mine soon and judging by the state of the crush washers last time, I must pick up some more

Right from above. Brake side was still blue but right side was brown. Gonna do it at least twice a month now I think.

Its worth it. Only takes 10-15 minutes, buy a bottle of fluid and it will last for quite a few.

I have a bit of a problem with my fork seals.

I planned to replace the foam seal and the rubber mounts on my Float 140 rl this morning. I removed the lowers, foam and rubber seals and gave everything a good clean up. Its put it all back together again time now however I cant seem to get the new rubber seals back in.

Any ideas?

spot of light grease might help.

They are quite tight, do they have notches cut out which line up with notches in the lower legs so can only slot in one place much like the offset notch on a freehub for cassettes? (I dont remember them when I did my talas 32's, just pushed straight in...)

or did you buy 36 ones for your 32's?

Definately 32's according to the packet however will investigate the notches.  When I did them last they just went in though that might have just been blind luck if notches are the case.

Edit:  Have just checked and no notches Sad

Edit:  Hooray for more grease and less manners Wink

Definately same size as ones you took out? are the forks old and they changed them over the years maybe, compare old to new visually then try some lube like Sailor suggested, might need tapping in withsomething flat on top...
