Suntour fork service

Postby anton1r » Mon Sep 17, 2012 16:20 pm

Hi all,

The missus bike (why is it always hers that has a problem and not mine! :? ) has Suntour NEX 4610 63mm travel, MLO (mechincal lock out) forks which are stuck locked out.

The suntour site has a guide for adjusting forks that are unable to be locked but I have the other problem. I've had a look at the workshop guide and to be honest i'd rather not have a go at it myself as I don't trust myself to take them apart realign/replace bits and put it all back together with any particular quality of workmanship or with any haste as she needs her bike for commuting.

Is this a job for the LBS or would they meerly ship them off to Suntour HQ for servicing? (Is this likely to be expensive?!) Do I just need to MTFU and give it a go and pray to the fork servicing gods it works out alright?

Thoughts and comments all welcome, cheers.

A fork strip and service starts from about £50. More if they replace parts inside. Given a new fork costs this, I'd have a go.

Cheers Sonic. I'll put it on my todo list.
