Rock Shox service guides
#1
Service guides for Rock Shox forks are here http://www.sram.com/en/service/rockshox/...subcatID=5  most havent changed over the years hence Pikes only showing as 2006. They also have foam rings like Fox's, unsure on the intervals for them. I would suggest dropping the lowers off and lubing the rings every now and then and leave the dampers for Mojo/tf tuned, i wont be going near my Fox ones either, just the simple bits...

Drop the lowers Si Ozzy then step 31, just like the Fox's http://www.sram.com/_media/techdocs/95-4...0Guide.pdf

So for coil pikes I should remove the lower legs and re oil the foam ring under the dust seals ? I've never tinkered with this area of the bike yet. Is there a danger of me screwing it up or is it really that simple

Yep, should  be quite simple, probably best to have a good read of the above but then also google it as that above link is for a full service

Ok cheers, I'm going to strip the bike down before the mashup next month so might do this too

I took my old pikes apart and its pretty simple, just as easy as foxs.

My 2009 Reba SL's have leaked oil from the R/H fork leg, air pressure is all fine in left leg so figuring it just needs a damn good clean up, new seals & oil.
Is that likely to be a tough, time consuming job and what seals, oil, other bits am I likely to need?

Was gonna send to TFT but can't afford for a month or more, so wondering if I could afford to buy the bits to do myself.
I take it I should avoid riding the bike in the mean time?

From where the stanchion goes in? Could be a worn seal if not serviced reguarly and have gone mega dry, of course if they were foxes the stanchion would be worn through but still a chance you have stanchion wear although its normally the disc side as that has more twisting stress from the brake

Have they leaked from top or bottom, could be the crush washer on the bottom which are a couple of quid or if its the top seal which run up and down the stantions then they less than twenty quid. both are easy to do. If its from top of fork then not sure

Only from bottom, although the right stantion is showing oil rings/deposits, but no scratch/damage visible.
Lockout (motion control) makes no difference and have plenty of travel (obviously I guess), thankfully no noticeable looseness front/back/sideways.
