Forks sticking

Recommended Posts

Just changed fork seals and oil for the first time and all seemed well till I took bike off the stand. As soon as I compressed the fork it stuck about 5 inches into the travel. I put it back on stand and it slowly comes out. I torqued everything to spec and am unsure as to what is going on. Any help would be great.

Loosened everything and was a bit better, now I'm way down in the stroke. Off the stand it drops a lot and action is stiff and minimal travel in forks. Would lack of oil cause this? Compared it to my buddy's bikes and I'm down a good 3 inches compared to theirs.

Cartridge might be under a vacuum. probably have to disassemble and re check that.
