Rebuilding Hydro Magnum Forks...

So the hydro forks on my magnum suck.

They don't want to compress.

When I finally put all my weight on them they compress and stick down.

Then i pick up the front wheel and knock it a few times and they extend out again.

What can I do to make these forks squishy again?

Is there a guide online on rebuilding?

What parts would I need to buy?

Re: Rebuilding Hydro Magnum Forks...

Have you tried filling them with oil yet?

Re: Rebuilding Hydro Magnum Forks...

not yet...where do you put oil in?

Kirk, it's way easy...you should clean them, reassemble and be done. I've done it a couple times now. Once out of the bike, another time in, and I'll have to reassemble another fork after my other bike comes back from paint.

go to pages 91-94. Just follow instructions. It's always good to draw a personal diagram of how one side comes apart. Clean the insides with contact cleaner, fill only with 120cc of fork oil. It won't seem like a lot, but if you over fill it is a total nightmare.

Awesome!

Thanks so much!

When I do this I'll take pics and get it into the wiki.

Thanks again!
