Revelations U-turn stiff

Postby fozzybear » Thu Jul 05, 2007 08:36 am

The height adjuster has progressively become more stiff over the last few weeks, until today I had to bounce while off the bike to adjust, whereas before I could do it 'on the fly'

The U-turn dial is easy to fix. If it's a coil shock there should be an Allen bolt, if it's air, removed the valve cap and you'll see a circlip (sp?) underneath. Removed the Allen bolt or the circlip and the top of the u-turn dial will come off. Underneath you'll see some ball bearings. Remove, clean and grease up the bearings, replace the cap and good as new. Had to do exactly the same thing on my U-turn at the weekend and found there was no grease at all and several rusty bearings!

Probably worth pointing out this works for all Rock Shox U-turn dials, not just Revelations.
