Honestly mine felt a waste of time at 40 hours ,I don't think it's a good idea to go longer ,but I could not see a reason to service them once apart , it's catch 22

The oil holds up really good as well , if you do them at 40 or 50 I would do bushes and seals , unlikely they will go to 80

Thanks, you are probably faster than me then. I am a 30+ B rider. The thing I have working against me is my size. I do tend to be rather hard on suspension components. 

I think I will just go with your advice and go 40 hrs and do a full service at that time and adjust my interval at that time if needed. 

One more question, are you guys using all OEM parts for rebuilds? SKF seals a good idea? They were always better than the Jap seals.

Skf is STD on wp forks

Awesome... thanks! I sent everything to FC to be set up so I have not taken a close look at the suspension. Cant wait to put some real time on this bike. I'm loving it so far.

I use a clear 3 ring binder paper holder/protector. Cut it in half/one sheet, grease it and use it as a sleeve to slide past threads. It’s thin,clean and cheap.

Hey Karl, can you please post up the part number.

 

Also, is anyone tuning the AER fork by changing the rate of the ICS spring?  thanks mate
