Get real Spokes. I dare you to go out to your garage right now and back your H limit screw right off, it will still work just the same.

My Fox forks have a split in the casting at the bottom on RH leg. Is this a common thing? obviously replacing them is the best option. can the be welded up or so for a cheaper option? Murphy's Law...They're a month out of warranty :angry:

nah, on the inside about 30mm up from bottom. The crack is about 50mm long and runs up the fork. It pisses oil out of it.

I thought it was a split in the paint job, and went about replacing the fork seals! I did a mint job too and then oil pisses out :angry:

Got fox forks serviced before I bought them, and they were leaking when I got them. Got them serviced again with new seals and they still kept leaking. Took them in and got new seals AGAIN and also had them locktight'd in. And they just popped up again....

They're 07 Fox FLoat RLCs. Any ideas what could be the problem?


You need some rock shox.

Funny, the first fork I had this problem on was a Rockshock.....

I've got some F32 lowers you can buy. You can have them cheap to get you up and running again, but I warn you they''re titinum grey -so want match the uppers- with IS disc mounts (so you may need an disc brake adaptor.)

f/hubs nice and loud. My bearings are still good and they've handled my not so delicate road riding style over the last few years
