Fork lube

Got a general MTB question that doesn't fit anywhere else? Here's the place.

All on SR Suntours webby, and really pretty easy.

There site is playing up. That, or my PC skills on a par with my mechanical ones. Just a couple of quickies to close the thread.....be patient with me, it's like I've emerged from a twenty year coma. I assume to remove lowers I detach the rebound thingy, then undo the bottom bolts, tap with hammer, slide out........service.....reverse procedure?
Also. Is there oil in the right leg?
Thanks.

Loosen the two bolts at the bottom of the legs, tap up GENTLY with a hammer to loosen the inteference fit, remove bolts, pull apart.

Not sure of the Damper on a Raidon.

Wow, didn't know you could do that...still I was right about not going near the stanchion with a screwdriver unless it's wrapped in insulation tape.
