Hi KB, I've taken them apart and there was something that had came apart it was the springy rod thing and when it went up and down oil came out so i put that back on seems fine now i lost a fair bit of oil though :( that side seems very spongy now is it because its lost oil? how would i top up this?

 

thank you

Yes .. Because you lost the oil most likely.

I'd drain out what's left , rinse out with a small amount on mentholated spirits or contact cleaner, then refill to standard oil quantity.

If you have the ability I'd completely disassemble the fork and completely clean and inspect, change seals and bushes.. But that's your call!!

BTW.. After filling the fork with oil, cycle the inside rod up and down through its travel till the dampening feels consistent ( no air pockets within the cartridge)

Remove cap and spring.. Then add oil, if that's how you want to repair it.

I'd completely disassemble it and clean out properly, YouTube it., you will learn something !!
