RS Rebound Stuck?

Postby The Northern Monkey » Mon Mar 04, 2013 16:51 pm

I wanted to make a quick adjustment to my Reba's on Sunday, but found I couldn't turn the rebound knob, was stuck fast!

The rebound is working as expected, but I can't adjust it.

Any ideas or do I take it apart?

You have to be careful, as the hole the adjuster hex threads into is (or was) a plastic, which can round off.

Remove the key and squirt a bit of lube up there. Then insert a longer 2.5mm key and judge how it feels. If it still doesn't turn you may have problems.

Phew, sorted.

Turns out I'd turned it all the way to one side when putting them back together and forgot to put it back! Thought the fork felt a bit odd!
