Suntour ncx lite Fork Air pressure

Postby GarrardRJ » Wed Jul 04, 2012 16:51 pm

Tried to find the answer on net and here !!!!!

How do i adjust the pressure of the forks ? Even the workshop manual does not tell me , not even where the valve is !

Top of the left leg. As per the manual and the info provided by you.

no idea. car valve type does most forks. if anything else was needed it should have been provided.

Pics would help.

When i get time i might need to post some photos but is there something under the big plastic type nut on the top ? I don't want to undo it and the forks stop working ! I do 29 miles every day to work and back on it

Ok......Its on a 2011 Scott Sportster 10....I don't know what version it is , the online pdf you gave me a link to doesn't even show the valve or the top of the left leg or how to check the pressure etc. Crap Workshop manual i say !

Probably a valve, take it off and see. You will need a shock pump.
