Fork bleeding

Recommended Posts

I know there's been thousands of threads on this particular topic but there's something I couldn't find.

So I've done my first seal replacement on a mx fork and I noticed there's barely any pressure building up in the forks. Since the replacement I've done above 10 hrs of riding and sometimes after a ride I don't even hear any air escaping after removing the bleeder screw. I'm pretty sure it's not serious for there are no oil leaks and the fork is not feeling harsh but I'm wondering why is that? Did I do something not entirely correct? I'm kinda puzzled.

It's a 2000 WP 43mm fork and I did everything with the manual.

Cheers

sometimes you get pressure build up, sometimes not. no big deal.

 

you might want to dump the oil just to make sure it's still pretty clean (that you don't have a little leak you don't know about that is letting air out and dirt in), but, if it's not leaking and feels good, i wouldn't worry about it.
